Many Restaurants Face "extinction" Amid Covid, Inflation And Staffing Shortages

Posted: Feb 22, 2022

Bright Marten was intended to be a Denver mainstay, bringing locals together over fried chicken and frosé. Instead, owner Jared Riggs' dream was dashed by COVID.

"I feel like we're kind of the canary in the coal mine," Riggs told CBS News.

Like nearly six out of 10 restaurants nationwide, Riggs saw his business plummet by more than half as the Omicron variant surged and forced him to shut down his restaurant.

"It's probably harder in 2021 than it was in 2020 for us," he said.

The Omicron variant and inflation were a double whammy that made keeping his restaurant open unsustainable.

"Staffing was a big one," Riggs said. "I've actually been, like, the dishwasher here for the last four months."
