More than ever businesses need each other’s support as well as community support during this pandemic. Huddersfield BID have been talking to independent businesses and national chains on how they have strived through this lockdown to date, to keep their businesses open virtually. Huddersfield BID are very proud of how businesses within the town centre have come together to form a community and provide successfully to its customers.

The lockdown has had an impact on public social life and evenings out to the pub or a restaurant. Businesses in Huddersfield have found a way to provide a service to the public, allowing them to enjoy their nights-in with their food and delivery services, such as Arcade Coffee & Food, The Parish and Kwas.

Arcade Coffee & Food, have set out to challenge the business difficulties due to Covid-19 by providing a delivery service to its many customers, with new daily vegan menus and a choice of drinks from retailed Darkwood’s Coffee to beers from the Magic Rock Brewery. There is also a selection of homemade jams and peanut butter available. A service you could only get from visiting the cafe is now virtually available during this lockdown right to your door.

Arcade Coffee & Food delivery has been busy with a high demand and continues to deliver fresh and delicious foods.

If you are a business in the drinks and food industry continuing to strive through the pandemic, please do share your story with us.
