Sunday (7th) is the annual Mother's Day.
Under the "vaccine bubble", all restaurant employees receive the first dose of the new crown vaccine, and "Zone C" with one table for 6 people can be opened.
Some Chinese restaurants that have set up "C Zone" believe that one table with more than 4 people is helpful for Mother's Day business. The current reservation rate has reached 80% to 90%, which is believed to increase business volume by nearly 30% compared to last year's Mother's Day.
Huang Jiahe, chairman of the Hong Kong Federation of Catering Industry Association, pointed out that before Mother's Day last year, the government relaxed to a maximum of 8 people, so the bookings were full.

Among them, hotel restaurants, such as buffets, have the best business. It is expected that many reservations are full.
