    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    I all boils down to knowing how to run a business and that's knowledge sadly lacking with most small businesses. Most small business owners are proficient at whatever it is that they do or sell but have no idea how to make a profitable business out of doing it. So you can't expect them to pay...

    Wonder who was bankrolling them.

    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    No, there is no shortage of workers. Just people who are willing to work in the hospitality field. You just gave the reason- "working in the industry has always been known for long hours, pay issues and other issues". During covid people have learned to adjust to not having their jobs. Maybe...

    Guess you are part of the problem if this is too difficult for you to understand.

    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    If you Google "long hours and little pay" you will see a picture of a restaurant. That's an attitude that only makes the problem worse. Instead of figuring out ways to attract and retain good workers like other good businesses do, this is basically saying screw you if you don't want to work...

    Home kitchen gas range?

    I have that one without the convection oven. What made me buy it was the heavy duty grates. I opted to have a grate over the center burner instead of the griddle for extra capacity but I could get the griddle plate and swap it with the grate any time I want. My dislikes after I got it- I hate...

    Federal unemployment compensation keeping people out of work.

    I've always wondered why the cost of labor is something that employers figure they can control. I think the answer is that there are always suckers who will work for whatever they are offered. It's a race to the bottom. Suppose you are a steak house and the cost of beef suddenly doubled for...

    Epoxy (and other?) floor reviews

    I did see one company that offered that for commercial kitchens when I was looking for Sika. The product is 1/4" thick sheets with welded seams. ALOT of welded seams for my liking.

    Epoxy (and other?) floor reviews

    The inspector is not the one you have to please. As long as the floor meets code it's fine. And code in this case means slip resistance and sanitation. Minimum standards may not meet your expectations however, and this is why you need to do your homework, see samples and maybe visit other jobs...

    Epoxy (and other?) floor reviews

    Now you are asking a question about something that isn't your responsibility. The answer is YOU don't, the company that installs it does- if they even use grit. This isn't their first rodeo. If you call Sika and ask to talk to a rep about your project like I suggested you will get all your...

    Epoxy (and other?) floor reviews

    For my money I would go with epoxy. Just looking around I would talk to these guys. They don't just offer a "one size fits all" solution. https://usa.sika.com/en/construction/floor-wall/projects/restaurants.html#a707466473

    Federal unemployment compensation keeping people out of work.

    Chief, $400/55hrs is $7.27 an hour before taxes. As an employer I want to pay the least amount I can. Hey, I'm giving you a job! As an employee I can't live on that unless I'm a teenager living at home. And at 55 hours a week there is no time for a second job. You have to look at...

    Research Survey for a New Smart Cooking Assistant Device Concept called 'Sous-Chef PRO'

    True, but this board doesn't attract much home cook traffic. Better to find one that is dedicated to home cooks and "foodies".
