A new survey of foodservice operators made it crystal clear on why new thinking for the new year is smart.
Datassential surveyed operators across America to identify their pain points and emerging solutions for 2023. The three greatest challenges identified were inflated food costs, labor shortage, and a continued faulty supply chain.
The three great challenges for foodservice operators entering 2023.
The hiring and increased hourly wages of employees is both time consuming and a burden on operators to properly train new hires. The survey found that prep and line cook positions are the most understaffed.

Nearly 1/3rd of operators say fully prepared products in the kitchen are more appealing due to labor problems.
