The Restaurant Industry has been badly affected due to COVID-19, and the continuous lockdown because of the ongoing pandemic. With this, the sector has witnessed a change in people’s consumption habit, with safety becoming the most important factor for a restaurant. Also, employment, skilled labour and sales and branding are some major issues the sector is facing for long. Seeing all this, Pravesh Pandey a seasoned restaurateur and hospitality professional launched Releski, an app based skill development platform for hospitality professional.
The Bengaluru based skill-tech company has hospitality in its veins and hence it has created the most comprehensive set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the post-pandemic era.
“The mission is to transform the skills landscape in Indian hospitality sector for blue collared workforce and increase employability in India by up-skilling vocational training course via video-based platform, said, Pandey who is the founder of Releski.
