All or none. Officials complain that they cannot operate at 30% of the capacity

HoReCa – all-or-nothing. Officials complain that they cannot operate at 30% of the capacity


Ion Domitru is the manager of a bar in the historic center of the capital. After the restrictions are eased, his restaurant must operate at 30%, in accordance with the legal provisions in force, to prevent the spread of infection with the new type of Coronavirus. The businessman says, however, that either the job is permissible in the 100% system, or it is not allowed at all.

How can I unlock 30% of the capacity? Well, the expenses should be reduced to 30%, ” says the official.

The businessman claims that although he is allowed to work with 30% card, the level of expenses is the same.

“We don’t just turn on the light in a corner of the restaurant. No heat. The waiters, bartenders and chefs who serve 30% of customers get paid fully. Makani’s rent has not been reduced by 70%, so, as the volume of customers decreases, the expenses remain the same.” ‘.

He says he doesn’t want to throw a black spot on the rulers’ cheeks, but he doesn’t think HoReCa’s lifeline is running at 30% capacity.

“I understand that we are going through a difficult period. In some countries, restaurants are completely closed. These people cannot even enjoy 30%, but it would be good for us and the country’s economy to find some solutions that allow us to work at our full potential.”
