Finding A Recipe For A More Equitable Food And Restaurant Industry

Torri Donley

Globally women do 85 – 90% of the cooking. They also do most of the grocery shopping and invest more of their money in buying food than men do. Moreover, women comprise a significant part of the workforce in the food and restaurant industry. With many restaurants all over the world having closed permanently or temporarily since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the future of the food and beverage service sector remains uncertain. Even when restaurants reopen slowly, they often do so with limited capacity in line with physical distancing guidelines and uncertain consumer demand. What is clear, however, is that women in the industry are likely to be among the hardest hit.

Why does it matter?

The coronavirus pandemic has opened many diners’ eyes to just how precarious things have been for workers in the industry, particularly women. What the pandemic has reinforced is

It’s a critical time to support local restaurants who are adapting to take-out and delivery. One owner is encouraging people to think beyond using third-party apps during COVID-19 crisis.

B.C.’s restaurant sector is hailing election promises by the province’s two largest political parties to put a 15 per cent cap on food delivery commission fees as a crucial lifeline for a struggling industry.

Platforms such as Skip the Dishes, Door Dash and Uber Eats currently charge restaurants as much as 30 per cent in commission on the total price of a food order.

Proposed plans to restrict the hours of off-licences will not deter parties and large social gatherings, but will only further damage the small business sector, industry experts have warned.

It emerged last week that the Government is considering plans to significantly reduce opening hours for retailers selling alcohol, in a bid to clamp down on house parties.

However, the Drinks Industry Group of Ireland (DIGI) and the Licensed Vintners Association both slammed the proposals this weekend.

“It would be counterproductive and ineffective. It will cause congestion in off- licences,” said Liam Reid, chair of DIGI.

“If this happens, it will restrict further the only income left to the hospitality sector. It will hit businesses struggling in a real way.

“We already have restrictions in place for house gatherings, they should be enforced in the first place.”

Mr Reid added that if these plans are rolled

What Does Workplace Wellness Look Like When You Work in the Restaurant Industry?

Torri Donley

The first time I heard about office nap rooms was seven years ago. A friend was telling me about her new job at the Huffington Post, which made headlines for being among the first companies to normalize napping as a means to boost productivity. It may have been the first time I heard of “workplace wellness” benefits, but it definitely wasn’t the last.

In a traditional office workplace—even at a time when many employees are working virtually—workplace wellness may conjure common themes: team workouts (even if over Zoom); access to health services (including telehealth and therapy); and dedicated communities among employees, like a Slack group for parents trying to juggle working from home and their children’s distance learning. But how do initiatives like these translate to those who are not in those office settings but are in restaurants—especially during a pandemic?

Trump Deals “Devastating” Blow To NYC Restaurant Industry By Ending Stimulus Talks

Torri Donley

This week, President Donald Trump tweeted that he had instructed his “representatives” to stop all negotiations on a much-needed stimulus bill, and instead turn their attention to getting his Supreme Court nominee approved.

This move comes after House Democrats passed a new version of the HEROES Act last month, a $2.2 trillion bill which featured policies including individual stimulus checks and various grants for industries including the RESTAURANTS Act, which would cover the difference between revenues from 2019 and estimated revenues through the rest of the year for restaurants.

“The twists and turns of these negotiations make for great theater here in Washington, but every week of further inaction means that hundreds of additional restaurants will shut their doors in communities nationwide,” said Sean Kennedy of the National Restaurant Association, one of the main backers of the bill. “If the White House and Congress are going to stop work on

Muhammad Ahmed, a resident of Pakistan’s federal capital Islamabad, was enjoying a bowl of vegetable and Hunan beef chow mein with his family in one of the most popular Chinese restaurants in the city, after waiting for one hour to get a table.

“Ginyaki is full of Chinese food lovers especially over the weekends and diners have to get reservations well before time to avoid any hassle. My family mostly prefers to have Chinese food whenever we are craving for some different food, as it is unmatchable as far as the amazing taste and health benefits are concerned,” Ahmed told Xinhua.

He said he has been to China several times due to his business and found the taste of the Chinese food served in Pakistani restaurants more or less the

Molson Coors to distribute La Colombe RTD coffees as hard coffee trial closes | Beverage Industry News

Torri Donley

Molson Coors Beverage Co has confirmed the conclusion of its alcoholic RTD cold brew coffee trial in the US, choosing instead to team with the brand’s owner, La Colombe Coffee Roasters, in a US distribution deal for its namesake standard RTD coffee portfolio.

Starting in January, Molson Coors will handle the distribution of La Colombe’s Draft Latte and Brazilian Cold Brew lines to certain parts of the US off-premise channel. The agreement comes just over a year after the two companies trialled two 4.2% abv cold brew coffees in selected US markets.

When contacted by just-drinks today, a spokesperson for Molson Coors said the pilot “concluded last year”.

While the non-alcoholic RTD coffee range already has a presence in the multiple retailer channel, as well as in La Colombe’s branded coffee shops, Molson Coors will be focusing its efforts on convenience and drug stores across the country.

NYC Restaurant Industry Could Lose 159K Jobs, 12K Eateries: Study

Torri Donley

NEW YORK CITY — The shaky ground under New York City’s restaurant industry during the coronavirus pandemic could still give way in the next six months and shutter half the city’s establishments, a new state audit warned.

“At the high end, that could result in a permanent loss of nearly 12,000 of the City’s restaurants and bars, and nearly 159,000 industry jobs, although the opening of new restaurants would mitigate some of these losses,” the audit issued by Thomas DiNapoli, the state’s comptroller, states.

The audit — “The Restaurant Industry in New York City: Tracking the Recovery” — presents a bleak future for the city’s eateries if recent and future government action fails to stabilize the industry.

The coronavirus pandemic wiped out the record high number of jobs — 317,800 — and number of establishments — 23,650 — reached in 2019, according to the audit.
