AS the Coronavirus pandemic challenges the economy, several local businesses are using lateral thinking to serve the community and ensure healthy practices.
The Wrap 'N' Roll Cafe is implementing a new walk-through service to limit the amount of personal contact for its customers.
The move comes as several businesses around the region have introduced new measures to help stop the spread of Coronavirus.
Wrap 'N' Roll Cafe's Tony Summers said his team was committed to being "proactive rather than reactive".
"Personally, I think it is a matter of when rather than if we're made to close off," Mr Summers told the Leader.
"If that's the case, we need to adapt and turn to things like deliveries and getting people to pick up after phoning or texting.
"The other thing we will be doing will be implementing a voice-activated service at the front door to allow people to place their order and pick it up at the window."
Mr Summers said the idea for a walk-through window was born out of the cafe's hopes for a drive-through window.
"The drive-through service has had approval since last year," he said.
"It's always been in the pipeline, we've just been getting around to getting it done.
"At the end of the day, we'll have a bit more to do before the drive-through is ready but at some stage we will be operational."
The long-time Tamworth businessman said everyone had to do their bit to help limit the spread of Coronavirus.
"Having distance is the only way to stop the spread," he said.
"It's about still finding a way to serve our customers without putting our health or their health at risk.
"In the meantime, we will still be working hard to deliver fresh, healthy meals to our customers.
"We offer gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options as well, so we will have everyone covered.
"I think all businesses are doing all they can to try and keep everyone safe during this time.
"It is a bit of a different situation, so it requires a bit of outside the box thinking from all of us."
