Navigating a business during these times is hard. The uncertainty of what is going to happen next is unsettling for a lot of business owners. The volume of customers is down which means revenue is down. Our team here at Market Equipment has been working tirelessly to ensure restaurants in the Washington and Montanna areas are well prepared to deal with the fallout of COVID-19.
How We Have Helped
COVID-19 has pushed the world into uncharted territory. There is no set-in-stone handbook to follow that will help guide you through a 21st-century global pandemic. And the sad truth of the matter is that most businesses aren’t built to last during months-long lockdowns. Luckily for the restaurant industry, there are ways to stay afloat.
Transitioning to Takeout
Your restaurant was built with a dining room and a bartop full of patrons in mind. This can make the transition to takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup a difficult one. We have been providing our services to local restaurants in the area to help make that transition easier.
While it may seem like a seamless transition, certain equipment will need to be tweaked to ensure the restaurant is prepared for the transition. Our team has been readily available to any restaurant that may need our assistance.
Regular Maintenance Services
Unfortunately, equipment doesn’t stop needing maintenance during a pandemic. Especially equipment that requires regular maintenance services. Failing to properly maintain equipment, even if it’s not getting that much use, can result in the equipment needing repairs down the line.
Here at Market Equipment, we still provide all of our maintenance services to ensure that your equipment is still functioning properly. We will check to make sure your equipment is running at 100% even if it is getting minimal use. The small amount of usage can actually be harmful to certain equipment, so we will make sure everything is running smoothly.
We are still offering our installation, renovation, and upgrade services during the pandemic. No customers allowed inside of your restaurant is the pits, but it does provide one benefit. It is easier than ever to upgrade old equipment or install new equipment.
Your restaurant won’t need to be closed for long periods of time any longer. Knocking out renovations while customers aren’t around can prepare you for when it’s time to finally open up to the public again. Plus, depending on what is being renovated, you can still offer your takeout and delivery options.
Cities That We Have Helped
It no secret that the Washington area has been hit hard by this virus. Restaurants, grocery stores, and every other business have seen a noticeable change in the way that they operate.

We have helped businesses in Spokane WA, Ellensburg WA, Richland WA, Kennewick WA, Pasco WA, Moses Lake WA, Kalispell MT, Great Falls MT, and Missoula MT adjust to lower volume and doing renovations for them during COVID.
We Can Still Help You
