    How grab-and-go food chains are adjusting to coronavirus reality

    Starbucks Corp, Dunkin' Brands Group Inc, Peet's Coffee and British bakery-cafe chain Greggs PLC have been forced to rethink how to serve customers quickly while keeping staffers safe and still make enough money to operate. At Peet's Coffee, the U.S. chain owned by JDE Peet's, 191 of the 250 company-operated stores had reopened as of Thursday. "We moved all of the tables to the front of the store, blocking the entrance," said Mary Dusenbury, senior director of retail marketing at Peet's. Registers and chip readers were also moved to the front, so customers can perform their own credit-card transactions, with chip pads wiped down after each guest.

    Greggs shares slide after British store reopenings postponed

    Shares in British baker and takeaway food group Greggs <GRG.L> tumbled as much as 7.3% on Friday after it reversed a decision to re-open some stores, leading analysts to question how it can successfully emerge from the country's coronavirus lockdown. All of Greggs' more than 2,050 shops have been closed since March 24 when Britain went on lockdown even though the government allowed takeaway outlets to stay open. Greggs - known for its sausage rolls and vegan snacks - had said it planned to reopen 20 shops in the Newcastle area of north-east England from next Monday in a trial to see if it could operate effectively with social distancing and other safety measures.

    UK baker Greggs to temporarily shut stores, scraps dividend as virus hits

    Earlier this month, Greggs warned that uncertainties over the potential impact of coronavirus were clouding its 2020 outlook, after a stellar 2019 that saw profit jump 27%.

    British baker Greggs' like-for-like sales were up by a "double digit" percentage in January before storms in February caused a significant slowdown in trade, its boss said on Tuesday. "We thought 'wow' this is fantastic (in January) because we were up against very strong figures the year before, but then we got three named storms all one after another," chief executive Roger Whiteside told Reuters. With regards to coronavirus, Whiteside said his main worry was the potential impact on consumer movement and demand if there was a widespread outbreak across Britain.
