Understanding the Impact of Supply Chain Issues on the Foodservice Industry

Supply chain issues continue to impact the foodservice and hospitality industry. From ingredient and product shortages to delivery delays, the challenges associated with managing a successful foodservice operation can be demanding. Let’s explore how supply chain issues can adversely affect the foodservice industry and what business owners can do to mitigate their impact.

When supply chain issues arise, restaurants, hotels, and even schools may be unable to serve certain menu items due to ingredient shortages, increased costs, and delayed deliveries. Additionally, customer service could suffer due to personnel shortages or equipment malfunctions resulting from delayed deliveries or lack of preventative maintenance services.
