Arc Inspirations extends EOTHO scheme into September

Premium bar operator Arc Inspirations has announced plans to extend the Eat Out to Help Out initiative across its estate throughout September following its resounding success over the past few weeks.

Launching on 1 September, the offer will be available on Monday and Tuesday in all its bars and gives customers a flat rate of 50% discount on food with no £10 cap. Customers will be able to take advantage of the new offer through the company’s new mobile order and payment service, launched in partnership with Omnifi.

Arc Inspirations operates 17 premium bars in the North of England, across three brands Banyan Bar & Kitchen, BOX and Manahatta. Customers can make the most of the September offer by enjoying the company’s refreshed food and drink menu across its bars, including the award-winning sports bar BOX – dishes include BOX’s signature All Day Breakfast Pizza, XXL 18 inch sharing pizza, Popcorn Chicken, Green Chilli Burger and Vegan options including Oumph Protein Vegan Kebab. New menus are also set to launch in mid-September for both Manahatta and Banyan.

Arc Inspirations CEO Martin Wolstencroft, said: “The Eat Out to Help Out scheme has undoubtedly helped to boost footfall, encourage customers back through our doors and reinstall confidence into drinking and dining out. It’s been a phenomenal success for us with total sales up 111% across Monday to Wednesday, which is very pleasing. Trading later in the week has also not been adversely affected which is also encouraging.

“We would like to see the Government extend the scheme, but regardless, we are continuing into next month with a 50% discount on food Monday – Tuesday and removing the £10 cap. We’re looking forward to keeping the momentum going, introducing some exciting new menu dishes and welcoming more guests through our doors.

“Since reopening, we have worked incredibly hard to ensure our guests feel safe in our bars and enjoy their experience with us. The fantastic feedback and positive comments we’ve received tell me that we’re doing a good job, and testament to everyone in the business.”
