The Eat Out to Help Out scheme has had businesses across the country claim for over 35 million discounted meals in the first two weeks of its launch.
The data also shows that over 85,000 restaurants have registered for the scheme, including high-street chains and thousands of small businesses across the UK.
Over 48,000 claims have been made by some of these 85,000 restaurants so far and the government is reminding outlets to submit their claims to receive the generous government payback.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, said, “Today’s figures show that Britain is eating out to help out – with at least 35 million meals served up in the first two weeks alone, that is equivalent to over half of the UK taking part and supporting local jobs in the hospitality sector.
“To build back better we must protect as many jobs as possible, that is why I am urging all registered businesses to make the most of this by claiming back today – it’s free, simple and pays out within 5 working days.”
