Coronavirus and the Hospitality Industry

The pandemic COVID-19 is impacting the world very badly, particularly the industries. The restaurant and hospitality business flourished on customers, local as well as foreign, but are now forced to stop all their activities and shut their doors because of the fast spread of coronavirus over a massive area.

What We Do?

‘Join Us To Prevent Corona Spread’ is an initiative by Y the Wait where we are calling upon the hospitality industry to join the fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic at no charge. We are also urging people to avoid using unhygienic paper menus and kiosks and opt for the digital waiter as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19.

Being the silver lining to the dark cloud, Y the Wait is offering the chance for the industries as well as the users to donate any small amount which will be forwarded to organizations fighting against Coronavirus around the world. They can also select which city they would like to donate to.

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” Coretta Scott King
