In a sign of the times, P’Nut Street Noodles is excited to welcome locals back to the South Bank precinct with the introduction of branded face masks as part of its uniform.

With P’Nut designed and branded face masks at the ready and increased procedures in place to face safety head-on, P’Nut is proud to be part of South Bank’s return to service as Brisbane manages the rocky road of COVID-19. General Manager Petra Orrenius says the restaurant’s swift and thorough response to the confirmed cases who visited the area in the recent COVID break out was testament to its commitment to the health and safety of guests and employees.

“We are immensely proud of the team’s efficiency following the alert from the Queensland Department of Health – closing our doors only minutes after notification. We promply assisted in contacting the 20 individuals who were in the venue within an hour and proceeded with deep cleaning immediately,” says Ms Orrenius. “To err on the side of caution, all of our South Bank staff were tested for the virus. Despite all the tests returning negative, the three workers who were in-store at the time self isolated for 14 days and have since returned a negative re-test.”

In addition to the mandatory branded P’Nut face masks, staff are conducting regular temperature checks, disinfecting all furniture for every customer, and collecting customer information via a QR code for contact tracing. To ensure precautionary processes are being followed correctly, managers are also required to send image confirmation of key opening procedures to P,Nut head office daily.

“Protecting each other by following Government guidelines and being proactive to manage this virus is crucial. We are passionate about making P’Nut a safe place for everyone and encourage other venues to follow our lead,” says Ms Orrenius. All Queensland P’Nut Street Noodles locations are open and excited to welcome guests for a deliciously authentic street food experience.
