As the government introduced a national lockdown, social distancing, the closure of non-essential businesses, smart working and stay-at-home measures, custom in a channel overwhelmingly dominated by eat-in trade was severely reduced between March and May 2020.
Specialist coffee and tea shops registered the lowest losses in cafés/bars in terms of value sales and transactions over 2020. Due to the impact of COVID-19, coffee and tea specialists had to adapt and develop new formats.
