How to make take-out restaurants more accessible

The thing to keep in mind is that with each passing year, the number of consumers who are seniors and those with a disability is only going to increase and why? It all has to do with the aging process which cannot be avoided or halted.

So to get you started, here are some tips for you.

  1. Make sure that your counters are easy to access and reach. That is, that from sidewalk to counter it is easy to find and that for especially those in wheelchairs, these counters are placed at a reachable height so that communication between customer and staff can be easily attained.
  2. That staff are appropriately trained to be able to communicate not just in the customer's language but also that they are able to carry out conversations in an articulate and fluent manner.
  3. That staff are appropriately trained to be able to serve those customers who have a disability; vision impaired, hard of hearing, or those with a mental or learning difficulty.
  4. That staff are prepared and willing and ready to assist those seniors who need help to maneuver their take-out cartoons and trays.
  5. That the entrances to your take-out establishments and exits from your establishments are accessible; that is, that they are easy to find, easy to navigate through, and easy to access.

This should be a great basis on which to build your accessibility platform.

Good luck!
