After three years of turning their wheels, Michigan restaurateurs can’t take it anymore

As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its third year, restaurants and other businesses in the hospitality industry continue to face uncertainty and weakening business conditions, resulting in the temporary or permanent closure of many of them.

While the pandemic has impacted businesses around the world across all sectors, restaurants have been particularly hard hit as they struggle to cope with ever-changing restrictions and ongoing staffing issues.

Lucas Grill, owner of 1983 Restaurants – which operates Seventy-Six, Poquito and Obstacle No. 1 in downtown Holland – said his restaurants have felt the pressure.

“The last two years in particular have been extremely difficult, to say the least,” Grill said. “It all really started with the labor issue.”

Grill said potential workers are finding a better work/life balance in other industries — and better wages.
