You Are Our Hope

Introducing Angeles Herrero, Owner, Kazbar - Middle Eastern Cuisine. In an effort to support the Hospitality industry, Expat Choice is speaking with the change makers on the ground who live and work in hospitality.

Restaurant, cafes, bars and not to forget live music are the life blood of our community. Gathering people together is what hospitality does. It is part and parcel with the industry.

What is to become of this industry during the crisis and then post-coronavirus? What are restauranteurs thoughts? What are their sentiments. Today we hear from Angeles Herrero, Owner, Kazbar - Middle Eastern Cuisine who opens her heart to the wider community.

"These are unprecedented times for most of us. We are all in this together. We must work as a community to make sure we overcome this adversity and rebuild our industry one step at a time – Starting Today.

The hospitality industry is experiencing unprecedented change, dealing with a new set of rules which impact the way we operate our businesses on a daily basis. Change is being experienced by the hour. A new set of rules, a new protocol, putting our industry on its toes, looking over the fence to see a new horizon.

Social distancing goes against everything we aim to deliver in the hospitality industry. The hospitality industry is built on serving people. People filled with food, sharing, conversation and laughter. Our primary role is to “gather people.” 

There is no better time than right now for you to show your support for your favourite restaurant, bar, or coffee shop by buying some merchandise, gift vouchers or food orders delivered to your door, or simply stopping by for a meal or to say hello – we are here for you. We have always been here for you.

Will the restaurants we know and love be able to take this on the chin and stay afloat, or close – with a glimmer of hope to reopen in a post-virus world?  Have you asked yourself how will the cooks, servers, bartenders and restaurant owners make it through the coming weeks and months with little or no income?

Every meal we serve, every drink we pour is how the hospitality industry can keep paying our teams and feeding our communities, but how do we balance this reality with our responsibility to keep our people and our guests safe?

Our loyal service staff are in the front line. They welcome you into our restaurant – our home – regardless of the threat of external infection. We are all in this together. Remaining vigilant, keeping hygiene top of mind. Every service staff has a responsibility, as do you – our guests.
The people who feed you when you’ve needed comfort, popped bottles for you to celebrate, delivered food to your doorstep are the very same people who need comfort and security, Starting Today. Act Now! Do whatever you can, in your own special way to reach out to the workers in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Please, don’t forget us – we are still here for you. Without you, we cannot exist.

And let’s not forget to support health providers who tirelessly support all of us regardless of the risk they take on a daily basis… as a “people” we have a duty to be responsible for our tribe, for each other.

The hospitality Industry has cities, countries and continents to feed, we need to innovate and create new ways to keep taking care of each other.   Let’s continue to “feed people” – responsibly."
