Like many businesses across Donegal, Tobin’s Service Station and Deli were hit badly by the arrival of Covid.
Before the virus struck, the popular Letterkenny outlet was a hive of activity for workers and students.
But Eddie Tobin and his staff are a resilient bunch.
And so they have come up with a unique idea that can see their loyal customers still dine in Tobins – but not quite under its roof!
Tobins have taken ownership of these very unique pods.
The dining pods allow customers to order their food inside and then dine ‘al fresco’ at the back of the building.
It’s not the Riviera or the Champs-Élysées but it allows Tobins customers to refuel and to catch up with each other once more in safety.
Eddie Tobin said today was their first day to use the pods and they have been very busy.
“With the current restrictions leaving cafes and delis unable to have any indoor seating it became necessary to think outside the box and to come up with innovative ideas on how to give customers an option to eat outside while keeping dry.
“Tobins Service station now have six pods available for outdoor dining. They’ve been so popular that we’ve just ordered another two,” said Eddie.Tags:
