Go Local: Hastings and Napier councils consider business support

Local cafes and restaurants are beginning to recover but support from locals and a new twin cities’ council initiative is “vital” to remaining in business, said Kolachi Eatery co-owner Jenna Floyd.

The café had its full breakfast, lunch menu and coffee available but is not doing cabinet food.

“We are definitely excited to be back, see some faces and doing what we love to do,” she said.

Locals can organise contactless pick-up through the Qoco app or delivery through DeliverEasy.

So far, these new systems have gone smoothly with 200 cups of coffee and about 45 meals ordered on Tuesday when Kolachi was able to reopen.

The eatery’s Emerson St location normally relied heavily on foot traffic.

“Locals need to recognise that to keep Hawke’s Bay going they need to support businesses or there will be a lot who are unable to open at all shortly.
