It is estimated that Britons plan to go on a £50bn spending spree once Covid restrictions are fully lifted, according to a report by Scottish Friendly and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR).
The report says that 28% of people plan to up their spending in restaurants and cafes, which is good news for the hospitality industry.
To capitalise on the forthcoming spending spree, flexibility in design is key. Having an adaptable business model and premises will enable you to make the most of a number of the restaurant and dining trends identified in 2021 by industry magazine Big Hospitality.
The eight fully accessible street level units with glazed frontages at Elder Way offer complete flexibility in design, lending themselves perfectly to a flexible business model. They’re also centrally located in Chesterfield town centre to make the most of footfall and some of the trends we will be seeing more of in 2021 and beyond:
- Enjoying your local – The pandemic has rekindled our love for what’s on our Chesterfield Town Council has invested in a brand new #LoveChesterfield campaign designed to attract people back to the town centre following lockdown.
- Flexible business model – Expect to see combined business models emerge, for example café by day and fine dining at night or café by day and take away at night.
- Supporting home grown – Brexit and environmental awareness is encouraging people discover the wonderful produce we have right here in the UK. Chesterfield and Derbyshire boasts a wealth of food and drink suppliers, including award winning breweries, distilleries, cheese makers and even tea, coffee and pickle producers to name a few.
- Veganism – Veganism has experienced significant growth over the last few years and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Around 13% of Brits are now vegan or vegetarian, with a further 21% identifying as flexitarian (eating mostly plant-based foods while allowing animal products in moderation). Expect to see even more meat-free menus in 2021.
- Eco-friendly approach – The UK is committed to becoming net-zero carbon by 2050. Consumers are starting to care more about how your business is ‘doing its bit’. Ensuring you are energy efficient, reducing food waste and using electricity suppliers that use zero-carbon sources are all great places to start. Chesterfield has its own Plastic Free movement and businesses are encouraged to become Plastic Free Champions.
