The Fraternity Club drive-thru food-ordering is proving to be a popular response to the coronavirus crisis.
With food made by Australian pizza champion Claudio Russomanno and the team of chefs at The Frat who have banded together to provide quality food to the community from their car window during COVID-19 lockdown.
The novel concept immediately appealed to motorists, according to general manager Greg Field.
"They like getting meals delivered directly to their car without having to enter the club".
The coronavirus pandemic has hit the restaurant industry hard.
But the Fraternity's quick thinking allowed patrons to continue to enjoy the club's quality food.
Danielle Bourgeois, of Figtree, described it as a safe and easy.
"I ordered a pizza and a couple of pastas for my family. What a fantastic concept during these times of uncertainty with coronavirus," she said.
Mr Field said it as only a few months ago that The Fraternity announced its sale of food and beverages outweighed gaming-machine revenue over the financial year.
He said that was a rarity in the NSW club industry and was a real testament to the club's food.
So it was not a great surprise it was still popular when the club faced COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
Food available for the takeaway service include that from the La Trattoria Restaurant and Il Bene Pizza & Gelato Bar.
