Vendors struggle to hire in time for the New York State Fair

With the state fair only a couple of months away, vendors are preparing for the event to happen at full capacity.

Some vendors are finding workers challenging while others are ready.

Nick Sanford, the owner of Toss & Fire said he’s nervous because they have never done a festival that’s 18 days long with only five or six people working in the food truck.

The wood fire pizza company has several locations and tries to prepare by hiring early on in the year, but Covid made that all the more challenging.

Though Sanford is nervous he is prepared.

Jay Cartini, the owner of Carvel Dewitt, has been looking for staff for over a year. He expressed staffing for the event challenging but said it can be done.

Cartini said he will be calling former employees to see if they would want to work for a day or two and tries finding new employees through current employees along with the use of social media postings.
