Firstly, let us sincerely thank you for the warmest response to our Take-Away service. All of you have demonstrated support to our business in the past few days with an overwhelming number of orders that show how much the Community of our customers cares about us and we are deeply grateful.
We are all facing unprecedented circumstances where the framework in which we operate changes daily. The Government has announced yesterday 20th of March 2020 the decision of closing down all the leisure activities including restaurants in order to minimise contacts between people in the attempt of slowing down the spread of Covid-19 virus and in doing so saving lives. To facilitate that, the Chancellor has made available financial resources to protect jobs and the survival of businesses.
We have assessed our Take-Away operation and we have realised that, despite our best effort, we will never be able to achieve a “Non Contact” policy able to protect the health of our Customers and Staff alike. It is clear to us that our responsibility as entrepreneurs and citizens is to fight this crisis that is affecting our Health before our finances.
So, after careful consideration, we have made the decision to put Health before profit and therefore Prelibato will be closed until further notice.
We would like to thank all of you once more and wish to this great country good luck.
Cristina, Michele and Giuseppe
