Both McDonald’s and Starbucks are being affected by a surge in the Omicron variant cases.
The high volume of cases is leaving both restaurants short staffed.
Which is affecting their operating hours.
This has led many McDonald’s and Starbucks locations shorting their hours of business.
Starbucks and McDonald’s feel the wrath of the pandemic
McDonald’s is unable to equip their restaurants with the correct number of staff.
Due to this they are unable to be open full-time.
U.S. locations now operate 10% fewer hours than before the pandemic.
Similar to McDonald’s, Starbucks is also warning customers that they should expect store closures.
Starbucks is also seeing a shortage in supply due to the pandemic.
“You may notice some stores will have shortened hours, that some products may be unavailable, or that mobile order and pay is temporarily turned off at your store”
The Omicron variant is spreading rapidly, affecting multiple food chains.
Such as Burger King, Shake Shack and Dennys.
Be sure to support your local food workers during this time.
