Re-Opening Florida – Capacity Restriction & Operational Guidance Highlights for Restaurants

Florida’s Governor and the varying county mayors have issued a variety of emergency orders and social distancing guidelines throughout the past several months.  The hospitality industry is headed toward recovery, but social distancing continues to require operational pivoting and innovative floor-plan reconfigurations. Below are some of the main operational highlights common across Florida that we’d like to point out for your reference.  Please note that applicable regulations are in constant flux and changing rapidly.  Please confirm the restrictions applicable to your business with your legal counsel or local code enforcement officials as restrictions may differ from the general information provided below.

We’re also providing a sample floor plan reconfiguration we created with the aid of our own Office Services Manager, and previous restaurant owner, Joe Carpintero!
