As labor costs, food prices, and operating essentials continue to rise, local businesses are feeling the effects. According to Restaurants Canada, utilities have gone up 6%, proteins increased 9%, and cooking oil prices rose by 40%. It’s no surprise that 51% of foodservice and hospitality operators in Canada are currently operating at a loss or just breaking even.
How can foodservice operators at Canadian restaurants, hotels, casinos, caterers, and recreational facilities save money and keep the doors open without compromising quality and service?
