Wegmans officials say there’s no timeline currently to bring back the self-serve hot food bars that were plentiful before the pandemic.
They were shut down early in the coronavirus pandemic due to COVID-19 guidelines, but many have wondered if they will soon make a comeback as residents get vaccinated.
The company has continued offering the same foods packaged, or through curbside pickup. However, they don’t have any plans at this point to resume the old service.
The company said the following in a statement about them:
“Prior to the pandemic, we had a number of self-serve bars in our stores that were very popular with our customers. When those were no longer an option, our restaurant foods team had to rethink how to offer the same delicious food in a different way, so we began putting a larger focus on prepackaged meals. We continue to follow the NYSDOH guidelines, and currently, we do not have plans to bring the self-serve bars back in their traditional way. However, through Wegmans Meals 2Go, customers can order the same restaurant meals for curbside pick-up or delivery. We will continue experimenting new ways to deliver restaurant-style food to our customers.”
