Our design is the product of a deeply thought out process where we brainstormed and considered all aspects of heating, space limitations, health concerns, social distancing, air ventilation, and affordability -- all while creating an exciting and comfortable experience that people would flock to!
We surveyed over 150 people to solicit their input on whether they would dine in our proposed booth design. 93 percent answered YES -- a winning majority!
We also interviewed local business owners on their thoughts on Slide & Dine, receiving great positive feedback and questions on when they could get more information.
Slide & Dine fully follows CDC's COVID-19 Guidelines and goes the extra steps to ensure a safe, healthy dining environment. This includes a sustainable open roof air ventilation system facilitated by a ceiling fan, UV disinfecting light, and separated pods to eliminate cross-contamination between parties. A no-contact iPad ordering system can also be added in each pod to reduce contact with waiters/waitresses and provide fast and efficient service. All surfaces can easily be cleaned and wiped down between parties.
