Last Updated: Tuesday 21st September, 2021
When are you reopening your restaurants, bars and cafes?

What is your stance on vaccinations?
Getting vaccinated is an important step we need to take to bring us closer to life as we knew it. Our freedom to enjoy together time at Applejack is only a jab away! We promise all staff will be fully vaccinated and we want you to feel comfortable and safe while dining with us. We trust the guidance from NSW Health and in line with Government health orders, it will be expected that all our customers are fully vaccinated to help keep our community safe. We have rebranded from ‘Applejack’ to ‘Applejab’ to encourage people to get vaccinated against Covid-19. This is vital so that we, and the entire hospitality community, can reopen for our customers in a safe environment. Read more here >
Are you offering takeaway and/or delivery?
At this stage we are not offering takeaway or delivery options.
How are you looking after your people?
We’re doing everything we can to look after our employees and are in regular communication with each and every staff member.
Through email, phone, zoom webinars with our Founders and our Applejack Employee Facebook group, we have been keeping all staff in the loop best we can by providing information on government news updates and Applejack’s plan of action. You can view our latest interview regarding our leadership strategy here >
A number of our eligible staff have been receiving the Covid Disaster Payment and we are continually supporting staff queries about visa implications, rent relief advice, mental health guidance and also keeping our staff engaged with each other through virtual social activities such as Tuesday Trivia! Read more here about what we’re doing for our teams >
Additionally, we have an external Employee Assistance Program available for our staff who may be feeling anxious or uncertain, to support them through this time best we can.
What is your Health & Hygiene policy at your restaurants?
Health and hygiene practices at our restaurants have always been of high importance, and we have implemented precautionary measures to ensure our environments continue to remain safe.
In an attempt to limit the transmission of COVID-19 virus and other diseases through contact, we have been proactively adhering to the advice issued by the Department of Health at both Federal and State levels. Before reopening any venue, we have been stringent in adhering to all guidelines and preparing our venues.
The following guidelines are in place:
• Guest and staff sanitising procedures
• Venue cleaning procedures
• Staff international travel policy
• Staff illness management plan
