"We're working hard to make sure Swansea City Centre is an inviting place for consumers to return to and we are supporting business in a host of practical ways."
Andrew Douglas, Swansea BID's Projects Manager
Many more restaurants and cafes are opening up in Swansea City Centre this week, now that they are free to use their indoor space carefully and responsibly. And Swansea BID (Business Improvement District) is urging businesses to sign up to use a free registration app that will enable customers to enjoy their favourite eaterie with no fuss.
Swansea BID has launched the evepass.app tool to make the mandatory customer registration that is in force UK-wide, easier for the businesses and the consumers, so they only have to give their details once, contact-free, before enjoying a safe and fun time in Swansea City Centre.
Andrew Douglas, Projects Manager at Swansea BID, said: “We are working hard to make sure Swansea City Centre is an inviting place for consumers to return to and we are supporting business in a host of practical ways, to help them to re-open under these changed and changing circumstances. We have had brisk take-up of the evepass.app tool and I would urge other food and beverage businesses to get on board with it too. The more hospitality venues that use it the more attractive it will be to diners and consumers, who simply have to scan the QR code that they will find at the entrance to the restaurant, in order to register, City centre-wide.
“It is great to see so many restaurants and cafes signing up for the UK Government and the Welsh Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, with La Braseria, Basekamp, New Slow Boat, Bunkers, Gershwins, Francos and many more on board with this very attractive scheme, it offers diners a 50 percent discount every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at participating businesses, throughout the whole of August. We are letting consumers know via our social media channels as new businesses register for Eat Out To Help Out.
“Added to this, the Quadrant bus station has re-opened, there is a free parking scheme in place across all Swansea Council City Centre car parks for the first two weeks of August, and fresh grants are being made available to support restaurants and cafes to open up their valuable outdoor space for customers. All the stops are being pulled out to re-invigorate our City Centre. Let’s get back to business.”
