we want to take the opportunity to extend our warmest wishes to all of our Zim Braai’ers during what is truly one of the toughest times we will see in our lifetime.
Staying connected is more important than ever and we want to make sure that we are keeping you all up to date with all our behind the scenes projects, initiatives and general info. Please follow us on Facebook & Instagram to see all our goings on!
As you are aware, we made the difficult decision to mothball our operation in totality from the announcement of the lockdown. The safety and well-being of our teams was of paramount importance to us and continues to be so. We could not morally put our staff at risk any further. This included stopping the Zim Tuk Shop and our Free NHS meals, however, we’re delighted that we delivered hundreds of fruit & veg boxes and free NHS meals whilst we were able.
Finding any small positives in such uncertain times is absolutely vital for the mental well-being of everyone, especially those used to a career in a social environment! We’ve had a lot of fun catching up with our team’s isolation goals, challenges & achievements. Whether it be baking, working out, painting, learning a language, building a Braai, catching up on some much-needed sleep… we all need a daily pat on the back right now.
Through the wonders of modern technology we’ve been able to hold regular ZOOM Meetings and Quiz nights with the team who are all happy, safe and in good spirits. At the beginning of the crisis we launched our Covid (19) Team Fund and this has been utilised in totality amongst those most in need so that they’re financially secure through these uncertain times & with help from our friend Kris Hall at The Burnt Chef Project we were able to supply everyone with guidance to help support their mental well-being through the lockdown.
Our main focus for now is that our loyal customers are completely assured that as soon as we are able to open we will do so in the safest and most responsible way humanly possible.
Our Senior Management Team are working day and night in order that Zim Braai returns stronger & more resilient than ever Post Covid (19). We will make all of our Best Practise Measures available online and Downloadable for our friends & customers very soon. Watch this space!
For now, Stay Safe & we look forward to seeing you all soon.
