Burger King hands out ‘social-distance crowns’ to diners in Germany

Burger King has debuted ‘social-distance crowns’ designed to keep customers 6 feet apart from each other as its restaurants reopened in Germany.

The huge golden crowns, feature the Burger King logo, and ensure that the wearer can’t get too close to a fellow customer.  

‘We wanted to reinforce the rules of high safety and hygiene standards that the BK restaurants are following,’ a Burger King representative told Business Insider. ‘The do-it-yourself social-distance crown was a fun and playful way to remind our guests to practice social distancing while they are enjoying food in the restaurants.’

In Italy, the chain is selling what it’s termed a ‘Social Distancing Whopper,’ which contains three times the amount of raw onions, in a bid to put people off getting too close because of onion-induced breath.

Burger King is one of a number of restaurants to introduce quirky distancing measures.

A Dutch restaurant has trialed five dining greenhouses to ensure social distancing. 

The Mediamatic Biotoop eatery erected five dining pods along a canal on the island of Oosterdok, Amsterdam.   

Staff members walk through the Bay area in Maryland and down a pier inside the tables, which are designed to look like inner tubes

Named Serres Séparées, meaning ‘separate room’ in French, the restaurant hopes that the greenhouses will allow customers to eat safely and securely while abiding with social distancing rules amid the pandemic. 

Waiters pass through dishes from a safe distance.

The restaurant will only allow people dining together who live in the same house.  

In Maryland, a restaurant has unveiled innovative ‘bumper tables’ on wheels – designed to keep diners safely six feet apart.

Fish Tales, nestled by the Bay in Ocean City, showed off the ‘social distancing tables’ in a Facebook livestream when they arrived at the seafood eatery on Saturday.

Shaped like inner tubes, the ten custom-made tables aim to keep customers six feet apart while they enjoy drinks from the bar.

The customer would stand at the center of the ring of rubber, which is fitted onto a metal frame with wheels to allow patrons to move around the premises.

In a video posted to the Fish Tales Facebook page this weekend, staff members are seen emerging from the back of a truck inside the ‘social distancing tables’.  

Earlier this month, a German cafe made their customers wear swimming pool noodles as hats to make sure they obeyed social distancing measures.

A similar strategy is also being used in Thailand. At one restaurant in Bangkok, people eat their meals next to pig balloons, which occupy seats as part of social distancing measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease at the restaurant. Diners are pictured here on May 21, 2020.

Cafe owner Jacqueline Rothe introduced the inventive rule to make sure her customers were not flouting social distancing rules.

A picture of the cafe’s unique policy was shared on Facebook, with people flocking to share their reactions to the cafe’s noodle technique.

In Japan, restaurants are installing clear screens in the middle of tables which will ensure customers can safely eat out with people outside their immediate homes. Pictured here, customers toast beers across the plastic transparent board at Kichiri Shinjuku, a Japanese style pub known as an ‘izakaya’, in Tokyo.   

Meanwhile London could lead the country out of lockdown, with talks taking place next week over allowing the capital’s cafes and restaurants to open for outdoor service.

Ministers launched a Transition Board for the city yesterday to coordinate efforts to lift restrictions. The body is the first of its kind in the country.

Downing Street confirmed last night that London could move out of lockdown first. 

Asked whether it could see measures eased before the rest of the country, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: ‘As we are able to gather more data and have better surveillance of a rate of infection in different parts of the country, then we will be able to potentially lift measures quicker in some parts of the country than in others. And equally we will be able to put the brakes on in some parts of the country.’
