Top 100 Business Trends in July

From Fully Automated Pizzerias to Hotel Pivoted Restaurant Rooms

— August 18, 2020 — Business
This list of July 2020 business trends explore many ways that companies are coping with the economic circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many brands are pivoting strategies to cater to the new normal by creating brand new experiences for its consumers.

One of the standout examples is by Hotel Stadt as it coverts its hotel rooms into individual pop-up restaurants. It turns its 67 rooms into an immersive dining space to offer privacy and meet social distancing rules altogether. Another great business concept this month is by Piestro. Piestro is a cooking system and a dispenser, which allows it to function as an entirely automated pizzeria full of fresh ingredients and custom recipes for consumers.
