The owner of Trent Restaurants Ltd, Peter George, has confirmed that all portfolio restaurants—Trotters, Buzo, Amara, Blue Star Diner and Tommy’s—will be closed to dine-in services from Tuesday 17, March for an initial period of no less than 10 days.

In an official statement, Mr George said the move was in response to the growing national threat of COVID-19.

Trent Restaurants also stated that all brands will continue to service their customers via curb side pickup and delivery options, once deemed safe, using the strictest World Health Organisation protocol standards from their international consultants.

In the release, Mr George notes that staff members will be rotated to ensure minimal disruption and says every measure will be taken to preserve the financial and physical well-being of all Trent Restaurants employees.

“This is not a step out of panic but out of prudence,” he stated. “T&T has stayed ahead of this virus and it’s critically important that we remain so through short term sacrifice.”
