3 Tips for Running Your Bakery During COVID-19

COVID-19 has undoubtedly had an impact on each and every business in one way or another. It is as important as ever that businesses are adapting to the new guidelines and adjusting their products and services to remain available to customers during this time. For bakeries in particular, it is important to tailor to the needs of your customers as their daily routines have likely been impacted by COVID-19. From ensuring all your bakery packaging is ready-to-go, to having customized bakery bags, The Packaging Company is here to help. We have put together some pro-tips to keep your products accessible and your customers happy and safe!

1. Stock Up on Takeout Containers and Disposables

As restrictions and guidelines are constantly adapting to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the luxury of dine-in and coffee dates are in the past. The increase in take-out and contact free pickup means that there are more disposable containers leaving your bakery. Be sure to stock up on these items so your business is not impacted by a shortage and can keep up with the takeout demand. Here at The Packaging Company, we offer a wide range of disposable/take out options that will suit the needs of your bakery. We carry everything from bakery bags (with or without a window), cookie bags, bread bags in all different shapes and sizes, grab and go containers, and disposable cups for both hot and cold liquids. You can even consider getting customizable sleeves for your drinks and sticker logos for your product! All of your unique bakery packaging needs can be found at The Packaging Company.

2. Take Proper Precautions with PPE and Signage

Taking the necessary precautions to ensure your staff and your customers stay safe while supporting your business is crucial. This means wearing the proper personal protective equipment in the establishment and having clear guidelines for employees and customers to adhere to. Here at The Packaging Company, we have everything you need to keep your employees and customers protected. We carry hand sanitizer, soaps, disinfectants, shields, gloves and even have customizable face masks for your business. Do not forget to clearly display signage that can help keep customers informed about restrictions in the store. We also offer customizable floor decals that help customers keep a safe distance while inside your establishment. All of your preventative safety measures can be found here at The Packaging Company.

3. Get Creative, Get Crafty, Get Customized

With the amount of people who are now working from home or just staying at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, customers’ everyday habits have changed. With this change, your business would benefit from adapting by offering new services or even new products. It could be as simple as offering a local contact-free delivery service, using existing food delivery services, or using social media to keep customers engaged. Many bakeries are getting a little more creative and opting to provide at home kits that allow customers to bake with pre-measured ingredients and even decorate their own goodies at home. The Packaging Company can help you develop a kit that is fun and supportive of your business by creating customized and unique boxes that will wow your customers. We can also provide you with the materials that can hold your products safely inside such as baggies, containers, and fillers. Here at The Packaging Company we strive to provide you the highest quality products that are the best for you, your business and your customers.
