"If 9/11 and the credit crisis were wrapped up into one, this would still be worse."
The Coronavirus has created a crisis in the restaurant industry, and while they’re fighting to stay open, others have already shuttered as they are not built for any other format other than sit-down, dine-in.
In this week’s episode, we are joined by Jonathan Maze, Editor In Chief at Restaurant Business Magazine. Maze breaks down what restaurants are currently going through, and what it would take for them to survive not only now, but in the future.
Also, while self-quarantined, the Katchup crew discusses its own experiences with restaurants at the time of a California lockdown, and how Foodbeast’s coverage has changed since the outbreak.
We also talk to our own resident food scientist, Constantine Spyrou, to get some little known facts about canned foods.
