For anyone who missed the news this week, longstanding Sauce Shop client and burger chain Wendy's is a shining example of how to operate under level 3; drive thru payments made via payWave placed on table and orders also placed on table, with windows closed to ensure no person-to-person contact, even contact tracing for every order. Staff keeping 1 metre apart. Uber drivers asked to sanitize their hands and maintain physical distancing. Great work Wendy's
