From outdoor dining to live music, nothing beats the Radius-Valpo experience. The Valparaiso Restaurant is a destination for anyone that wants to get out and have some fun! So when the COVID -19 crisis hit, Chris Pavlou shifted his business model to online ordering to facilitate curbside pick up and delivery.
Until Radius got through the coronavirus/COVID-19, the new normal was creating a remarkable at-home dining experience. Pavlou’s objective was to maintain enough business to keep his employees going.
As an award-winning chef, Pavlou is wired to turn lemons into a Radius cocktail.
He used his employees to do other things around the Radius. Staying idle or getting depressed was a waste. It wasn’t in the Radius DNA. Team Radius would use the downtime to make improvements.
Radius used the downtime to re-model, paint, and make improvements!
The Chef paid his employees to paint, clean, and sterilize. He ordered new fixtures, extended his bar, and created new recipes for his food and drink menu. They even ordered new outfits. When the crisis would come to an end, Radius would have a fresh start.
That start was Monday, as National Networks and all of the major Chicago TV stations converged to the downtown to see how the Valparaiso restaurants would handle the new normal. America was adjusting and Indiana was ahead of the country. Attracted by the Downtown Valpo Restaurants robust association and its forward-thinking marketing and website, the media converged on Valparaiso and its Association CEO, Chris Pavlou.
The hype was just what Valparaiso needed to get things moving. Getting a table at Radius is back to normal. However, with 50 seating reduction in phase one, getting a seat is tougher than ever.
Radius shuts down delivery–but customers can still use the Radius Online Ordering for Pick-Up!
With the boom in business, it was time to get back to creating a remarkable dining experience at the restaurant. While the delivery service helped get the employees through the crisis, it’s now time to focus on live music, outdoor dining, and Social Scene Radius.
…and for those that fell in love with the Radius Online ordering custom built by Jano-Valpo and JWM Marketing, it is still available for pickup. But for the ultimate dining experience… it’s always better at Radius.
