Is the closure of your favorite bar or restaurant imminent?

Large fridge and freezer in the kitchen.  Large drink fridge/s in the restaurant.  These are on 27/7.  Running in a hot climate.  

 

Possible electric cooking, and water heater.

 

Air conditioning would also be expensive to run during opening hours. 

 

Lighting not so expensive, but also on during opening hours.  

 

Opening hours 2pm to 11pm.  Open an hour early for prep, and close an hour later for clean up.  That's 11 hours a day, but fridges and freezers running constantly.  

 

You don't think it's possible?

No.

No.

 

But i have known people with more appliances on than you mention and their bills were never anywhere near that much.

 

Maybe there's a different tarrif for residential and business rates?

I only mentioned what I thought would be the appliances that are the bigger users, but there are many others.  Eg. cash registers, computers, CCTV etc etc etc etc.

 

Maybe there are different tariffs, that there's certainly some big electric motors running a lot in an operation like that.

These are negligible.

They all add to the total use of electric.  

 

You say you don't believe 28k per month, but don't say what you think would be an appropriate figure.

Anyone been out to their favourite bar or restaurant tonight or the last couple of days and can comment on the actual situation they've seen for themselves? 

 

What I've seen is worse than I expected and I wouldn't say my expectations were set very high. After Tuesday when more places re-open can't help thinking it's going to spread the limited custom even thinner. 

 

I hate to say it for the staff concerned but I can only see more closures being posted on here over the next few months.

Like a computer, there is sleep, hibernate, and shut down.  We will soon see which businesses end up doing what.  

Its hard to say for Hooters Pattaya.....They seem to have a pretty good sized war chest....And despite all the setbacks they have seemed determined to stay open....But then again Covid could be the straw that broke the camels back.....

They need to review their pricing. Expats are not going to pay what they charged pre-Covid.

They would be paying a large franchise fee, in a place devoid of tourists. 

 

We have discussed if Thai landlords were going going to offer some rent reduction, but franchise fees is another one.  McDonalds, Subway etc.  I wonder if they will be getting a franchise fee reduction.  If not, maybe some on them might close as well.

I,ve just been informed that many of the bars on the New Plaza have informed their previously salaried staff they will have to revert to "freelancing".....anyone else can confirm or not?

Looking at the state of most of the women in New Plaza bars I am surprised that any bar owner would commit to a monthly salary !    😉
