All of our Dallas-based business partners have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. While there is little any individual company can do to remove the challenging implications of the pandemic on their business, there is a lot that an individual company can do to sustain operations and continue to survive and thrive through this season.
The OTG team wants to thank Kwench Juice Cafe for their transparency and engagement. We asked about how COVID-19 has impacted their business and what they are doing as a result. Shraddha talked a bit about how Kwench Juice is combating the challenges of COVID-19.
COVID-19 IMPACT & RESPONSE
How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Greatly, like everyone else. We are located among the corporate office park and since everyone is working from home these days, there is no one here.
What changes have you made to your business in response to COVID-19?
We started curbside deliveries and online ordering for our customers.
How has your physical to the digital portion of your business changed? Have you seen a significant increase in deliveries and or certain products being consumed?
Not really. We are relatively new to the market. We never had enough time to establish our business since we opened in November 2019.
Has COVID-19 affected your marketing & advertising strategy? If yes, what new ways are you reaching locals now?
We are spending more time on social media advertising!
