itsu has announced that it is to offer a discount of 50% off every menu item and a free miso or hot drink for NHS staff.
Founder Julian Metcalfe OBE said: “At itsu, we acknowledge and admire the incredible bravery and sacrifice being made by the staff of the NHS, in their unwavering efforts to help and support the public at this time of crisis. We already offer discounts to the emergency services, and we are now extending this to 50% off and free miso and hot drinks.
“It is now more important than ever that our NHS staff have access to delicious, healthy, hot food made fresh in the country’s cleanest kitchens. As businesses and society come together, it really is the least we could do.”
The Asian chain has also announced that it is moving to a takeaway-only service, reducing the time customers spend in stores and restaurants. It will ensure that deliveries are appropriately sealed and put into thermal bags carried by the drivers, as well as work to maintain the supply of its popular grocery products to supermarkets across the UK.
