Toronto restaurateur launches product to help restaurants navigate the flood of COVID-19 health and safety guidelines
Toronto, ON - June 22, 2020 | While local public health authorities have all released guidelines, restaurateurs have been left to their own devices to solve the problem of operationalizing the guidelines and setting up their own systems and procedures to track compliance.
Today, ResQ announces the launch of Checklists, to help restaurants navigate the flood of COVID-19 health and safety guidelines as restaurants emerge from the pandemic.
"As a restaurant owner myself, I have always embraced the responsibility of building solutions that support the restaurants of today and in the future. As the industry has been forced to evolve and adapt with virtually no tools or aid to help operationalize the flood of new guidelines, Checklists is our way of giving back to the community, and to persevere alongside our customers with a relentless passion in the face of extreme uncertainty. We stand by our mission of empowering restaurant operators to build better-managed businesses," says Kuljeev Singh, Founder and CEO of ResQ.
As the owner of Kanga Aussie Meat Pies, it was the unfortunate experience of having to deal with a broken fridge, and being unable to find a contractor on time, which resulted in the loss of thousands of dollars in inventory over one weekend that inspired Singh to start ResQ, a platform that helps restaurants manage their repair and maintenance experience.
ResQ has consulted with customers from leading brands across North America, such as Pizza Hut, Tim Horton’s, Earl’s Kitchen & Bar and Paramount Fine Foods to identify solutions to help restaurateurs emerge from COVID-19 at full operational efficiency.
"ResQ has been a pivotal partner in helping restaurants navigate and manage the "new normal." The team and the solutions that ResQ have introduced have always been timely and solve real and specific problems that plague the restaurant industry at large and this is just one of the testaments of an organization that answers the call in times of uncertainty and unprecedented challenges," says Mohamad Faikh, CEO of Paramount Fine Foods.
Checklists can also be extended to other areas of everyday restaurant operations including staff training, opening/closing procedures, and repair and maintenance schedules. Creating and editing new templates are easy and can also be customized by frequency, such as daily, weekly or monthly operating procedures that are required to manage administrative and operational tasks to completion.
Key features of Checklists include:
Free and easy sign-up: Sign-up is free for new customers and as an added product feature for existing customers. Users can add an unlimited number of locations and users.
Customizable and easy to use: Pre-populated COVID-19 prevention templates to help operators get started with industry guidelines.. Users can customize and edit existing checklists as well as create new ones for virtually any other aspect of restaurant operations.
Transparency and accountability: An easy and effective way to assign responsibilities to staff and track progress towards internal policies and procedures.
ResQ was founded with a mission to empower restaurant operators and service providers to build better-managed businesses. As a first step towards this mission, ResQ has built a platform that helps restaurants manage all their repair and maintenance operations, empowering them to focus on creating great guest experiences and growing their business.
With over 1,000 happy customers, ResQ is trusted by the world's leading restaurant brands and revolutionizing the restaurant maintenance experience. For more information, visit www.getresq.com.
