The Covid-19 Top Headlines
A new number one has emerged amidst the protests and riots against racism in the US and now the wider world. It did feature in our first Top 20 and has hit the top spot through searches related to racism. Not something McDonald’s would welcome, or the wider industry.
It has been interesting and pleasing to see a general swing of ‘positive’ news making more of the most read headline slots.
Another ‘general’ move in popularity as a category is news related to reopening hospitality.
France reopening its hospitality industry leads the way in a recent surge in reopening news and lots of coverage. It is the only reopening page making the Top 20, the shift in emphasis as a category focus being the most interesting dynamic.
Workplace foodservice has been a significant sector for readers helped by insights from industry names shedding light on planning processes to reopen. Workplace foodservice clients sharing their requirements for reopening then followed making essential reading for many.
We have also seen readers treat themselves to a number of ‘memorable dining experiences’ with fine dining at Michelin starred restaurants including El Bulli from Richard Vines.
Suppliers have also made their marks, especially with essential services that are very much in demand.
We will continue with this series in the months ahead and hope that the reopening of hospitality businesses all over the UK will dominate soon.
