As part of a phased approach, Peet’s Coffee has revealed the reopening of thirty-five locations in California, Washington, Oregon, and Illinois. All businesses are operating in a limited access model due to Covid-19 restrictions, but the cafe space is closed to customers.
Peet’s customers can order and pick up at the front door of the coffee bar, or place an order using Peet’s Mobile Order Ahead app. Through the app, customers can find beverages and product categories, with all locations offering whole and ground coffee beans for home brewing.
Peet’s has also carried out higher protocols for cleaning and sanitation. Also, employees are required to wear face coverings while working, with symptom checks being carried out at the beginning of each shift. The company has also set POS registers and chip readers to the front of the stores so customers can pay with their credit card transactions. Chip pads are wiped down after each guest.
Peet’s is continuing to evaluate the existing conditions and evolve operations accordingly with the well-being of ‘Peetniks’ and communities in mind.
