Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


UpStart Wales Video Podcast with Tommy Heaney


As we emerge from the third lockdown, we recognise some of the adverse changes the hospitality industry has had to implement into its daily practices in order to survive.

With the recent reopening of outdoor dining, and with inside dining soon to follow suit, it’s safe to say that such developments will aid the hospitality industry back to health and towards a long-awaited recovery.

In this video podcast for UpStart Wales, Will Roberts (Managing Director at WebBox) talks with Tommy Heaney (Head chef and owner of Heaneys Restaurants, Pontcanna), to discuss which practices and adaptations he had to implement in his restaurant during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Other topics included are; how the business had to quickly adapt to the everchanging regulations and laws, how they were able to implement changes overnight in light of the furlough scheme, and what they learnt from these experiences – not only to ensure the business’ survival at the time, but to strengthen the business going forward.
