Windsor Foodservice Roadmap
26th February 2021
So finally after an unprecedented period of ‘lock downs’ and restrictions we are now closing in on dates when catering and hospitality outlets will finally be allowed to reopen.
The Prime Minister has proposed a new staged approach to ease England’s lockdown (subject to strict conditions);
From 8 March. - All schools will open.
From 29 March. - Outdoor sports facilities can reopen and grassroots sports can return with travel outside your local area allowed.
From 12 April. - Outdoor settings can reopen including beer gardens, zoos, theme parks and camp sites.
From 17 May. - Indoor hospitality venues, hotels, cinemas, museums and sporting events allowed to open with most social distancing rules lifted whilst outdoors.
From 21 June. - All legal limits on social contact removed and the reopening of the remaining closed sectors.
As we emerge from this nightmare it is difficult to know how quickly things will pick-up and what the ‘new normal’ will be. We would therefore ask all customers to give us as much notice as possible of your forthcoming re-opening plans and requirements and to speak directly to telesales on 01226 274333 between 9.00am and 4.30pm. In this way we will be better prepared to fulfil your requirements.
Rest assured we will be providing a fully comprehensive delivery service to all areas again and in conjunction with our suppliers we will make every effort to maintain and develop our product range and levels in preparation for the ‘restart’.
We thank you for your valued support in the past and we look forward to continuing to be your foodservice provider again in the very near future.
Your Windsor Foodservice Team
Coronavirus "Lockdown" Revised Schedule
Following the Prime Minister announcement of 31 October 2020 we will be entering a further period of ‘lock down’ with effect from Thursday 5 November. Initially this period is set to last for 28 days although there is no guarantee that it will not be extended.
Regrettably, as is all too obvious this will mean that the majority of Hospitality and Catering businesses must close for the duration (with certain exceptions).
Here at Windsor Foodservice we can confirm the following;
We will remain open for business throughout the ‘lockdown’
Telesales will continue to operate M-F 9.00am - 4.30pm
The out of hours answerphone service is available but any orders placed via this service cannot be guaranteed for next day delivery
We remain committed to maintain adequate stocks of all products wherever possible
The fresh meat department will remain open
A flexible delivery service will be maintained but a reduced service may operate in your area. Please speak to our telesales team for full details
Our accounts department will remain open
We will continue to operate on a ‘Covid safe basis’ – please see our risk assessment for further information
Thank you for your continued support
Creating a Covid-secure workplace
COVID-19 Update 6th July 2020
Dear Valued Customer
Finally after an unprecedented period of ‘lock down’ we are now closing in on a date when catering outlets will finally be allowed to re-open (subject to prevailing social distancing requirements).
Like yourselves we at Windsor Foodservice have had to react quickly and put measures in place to ensure that overheads have been kept under tight control including utilising the Governments furlough scheme for the majority of our staff across all departments.
Throughout the ‘lock down period’ we have continued to offer a delivery service to all areas but on a restricted basis and we have worked very hard in conjunction with our suppliers to make every effort to maintain adequate stock levels in preparation for the ‘re-start’.
As we emerge from this nightmare it is difficult to know how quickly things will pick-up and what the ‘new normal’ will be. We would therefore ask all customers to give us as much notice as possible of your forthcoming re-opening plans and requirements and to speak directly to telesales between 9.00am and 4.30pm we can then tailor our staffing levels and delivery service to fulfil your requirements.
We thank you for your support in this matter and we look forward to being of service again very soon.
