We’ve been enjoying keeping up with new and exciting ways to keep food venues alive. The hospitality industry has been hit hard from the pandemic closures, yet that hasn’t stopped new food services opening their doors .

Check out the food business who launched amid the chaos:

No Biggie Meals

A breed of hospitality enthusiasts created No Biggie as response to the big issues our local venues and local community are facing. The aim is to keep hospitality workers employed and keep locals fed with ready-to-eat meals. These meals are a movement – a hyperlocal effort to keep hospitality alive by providing a new offering.

On Dine Restaurant

New Canberra Restaurant in Deakin from Daniel Giordani and Keaton McDonnell. Paying respect to European hospitality and the vast culinary history it provides. These brave souls were due to open when the pandemic hit so they have had to resort straight to takeaway offerings. Give them a warm welcome and place an order www.ondine.com.au

Fricken Fried Chicken

They outgrew their van which locals became familar with at every foodie festival and took a leap of faith to a venue on Lonsdale street Braddon. Unfortunately, timing was not on their side. Nevertheless the team are frying up a storm from their new home. Order your takeaway in-store or online at fricken.net.au
