It isn’t just groceries store items or gas stations feeling the shortage of goods and supplies, it’s restaurants.
First, they struggled to keep employees. Now, they struggle to keep basic products on hand and a full menu available to customers.
Many restaurants have no idea what to expect when their deliveries come, and it changes often what may be out of stock.
Labor intense products are harder to come by, like mozzarella sticks or breading, and oil for deep frying is also in short supply.
Containers are an added stressor on top of all the other frequent changes restaurants need to adapt to as well.
Beginning in 2022 Styrofoam containers are no longer allowed, and some restaurants are even charging for the new to-go containers.
