This week on the Daily Grind livestream, we're discussing the road to re-opening as many states make plans to open businesses. Monday, Shawn Black, CRFP, discussed what multi-site companies can do as they plan to reopen facilities. As an expert and speaker in brand strategies and Regional VP of Business Development for CPG Maintenance & Construction Services; Shawn brings his market knowledge as we navigate these difficult times and map the road ahead.

 

CGP has implemented several new services during the quarantine. Our ICR report, basically dark store maintenance, has been instrumental in keeping dark stores functioning properly during the lockdown and prepare for re-opening. We’re also working on keeping our stores sanitized and providing the new methods to battle COVID-19 now and in the future.

 

It’s been interesting as stores look to re-open. The major theme I’ve noticed is FM’s looking for partners they can trust. They need partners that are flexible and understand the challenges they’re facing. Providing stability and positivity day to day is will be crucial moving forward.

 

There are a lot of resources available as you prepare stores to re-open. Bottom line stick to what is known. Review CDC guidelines and local / federal requirements. Be sure to work with partners you trust to do the same. FMs and Supplier both have enough to worry about with all the new restrictions and regulations, make sure your team has your supplier team has your back. That will make re-opening go smoother.
