All business around the globe are predicting a surge in business after the COVID 19 pandemic has passed. Some salons in the UK have estimated that the surge could be of post-war proportions. Do you have plans in place to re-start your business when it is safe and legal to do so? We recommend that your plans should include:
Communications – how will you communicate to your team and your clients?
Hygiene – have you address all social and legal hygiene issues in your business? Plan a deep clean of all areas in your salon especially doorknobs, credit card machines and the backwash areas.
Appointments – is your appointment system ready to cope with a huge increase in demand? Whatever system you have, make sure that you and your team are trained and ready to cope with a large increase in calls and appointments.
Stock – do you have enough stock to see you through the busy post-Covid surge? Why not plan now to ensure you know what to order and how long deliveries will take. That way, when you are ready to re-open, your suppliers will be there to support you every step of the way.
