Many companies are switching over their operations to produce face masks, disinfectants, and other needed supplies. You don’t have to be a big corporation to make changes. In fact, the smaller and leaner your business already is, the faster you can shift gears and zoom back into action.
If you have a catering facility, for instance, consider selling and delivering family meals to consumers. If your hot dishes could be frozen and reheated, or frozen uncooked and then cooked by the customer, offer customers the option to buy several days’ meals that they can store at home and cook as needed.
Consider what your customers need and would buy from you and pivot your operations. If you are a retailer who is able to stay open or sell online, but can’t get inventory or supplies from your regular vendors, look for local merchants who might be able to help you meet your needs.
