Due to national lockdowns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many restaurant suppliers had to close down or reduce their output. Yet, now that restaurants are opening up again as more and more people get vaccinated, they are finding it hard to keep up with the rising demand.
Now that it’s becoming safer to do so, many people are looking forward to getting out and about after spending over a year locked up because of the global pandemic. In other words, a lot of people are excited about the notion of enjoying their favorite meals away from home now that restaurants are allowing more patrons across the country.
However, although under normal circumstances this would be good news for the restaurant industry, which suffered greatly during the pandemic, many restaurants are finding it difficult to acquire all the ingredients they need.
For instance, one of the ingredients that’s extremely hard to come by is none other than chicken parts, of all things!
Hence, with supply being so low and erratic, planning a proper menu for customers to enjoy is almost night impossible. Meaning, at times, some dishes won’t be available or the restaurant may even run out of their signature dish in the middle of an afternoon or evening.
So, if you’re tired of cooking at home, you might want to consider a meal delivery service instead of eating out at a restaurant. Alternatively, you could make use of your favorite slow cooker for a few more months until restaurant suppliers get back on their feet and meet the increasing demand.
