Alexandria, VA – Lebanese Taverna has hit the road with a new business niche for its catering division, which had been shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After the initial closure in March, the catering division lagged behind as the restaurants slowly opened up as allowed here in Virginia. No events, no meetings, no large gatherings left the catering division running on empty.
Grace Abi-Najm, one of the company’s owners, had an idea. Why not cater to their neighbors, so to speak? They promoted a limited menu, advertised locally and received several orders. They began to branch out to neighborhoods in a wider range, all with great success.
Coming up with creative solutions is essential to surviving in today’s economic environment, and Lebanese Taverna seems to have filled a missing niche. Neighbors place their orders when the schedule comes out, and pickups are at a neighborhood location nearby, such as a school or a church.
“We have been so pleased with the response!” said event sales manager Patricia Zapodeanu. “The Neighborhood Deliveries have really taken off, and our customers have given us great feedback on how much they appreciate the ease and convenience of this new service.”
Are they coming to your neighborhood soon? They could be! If you gather a few neighbors together for orders, they just may be able to make it happen. Visit lebanesetaverna.com for more information, and look under the Neighborhood Deliveries tab.
