Covid-19 press release
At Turn ‘n Tender we take extra care of our people and our customers. In this spirit, we have heeded our President and government’s call to lock down society over the last few weeks in response to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. We commend the strong leadership from the President and other leaders to “flatten the curve”, and the brave frontline healthcare workers who are providing their services.
With the introduction of 5 pandemic alert levels, and the easing to level 4 from 1 May, we have received notes of excitement from our customers eager to enjoy their favourite steak from Turn ‘n Tender once again.
While we are eager to get our chefs, waiters and other Turn ‘n Tender family members back to serving our customers again, the reality is that under “delivery-only” trading conditions, this is not possible for most of our restaurants. With our support, every Turn ‘n Tender franchisee has been evaluating the feasibility of re-opening for delivery only under Level 4 conditions, and only restaurants that are successful in obtaining financial support in the form of (amongst others) rent relief, will be in a position to re-open without incurring further losses.
Selected restaurants open for delivery through our delivery partners currently include:
- Turn ‘n Tender Dainfern
- Turn ‘n Tender Bassonia
- Turn ‘n Tender Loftus
- Turn ‘n Tender Ruimsig
- Turn ‘n Tender Waterfall
- Turn ‘n Tender Jean Avenue
- Turn ‘n Tender Midstream
- Turn ‘n Tender Parktown North
- Turn ‘n Tender Illovo
We have also updated our safety and hygiene operating standards and procedures to align with best practice requirements from the Health Ministry, as well as our industry bodies. You can be assured that both Turn ‘n Tender restaurants and our delivery partners will adhere to the strictest hygiene standards all the way from order to delivery to you – to minimize the potential spread of the virus.
Please continue to stay home, stay safe and continue to demonstrate the legendary spirit that we know you share with us.
The Turn ‘n Tender team
