Popular CNY Dunkin Will Only Run in the Mornings Due to Lack of Staff
The struggle to find staff is real. More and more business owners are being forced to cut back hours due to a shortage of employees. And not just in New York either. The problem is country-wide. A popular Central New York business is the latest victim.
America may be running on Dunkin, but Whitesboro will only be running in the morning. A sign in the Whitesboro Dunkin Drive-Thru says "due to lack of staff we will only be opening our Drive-thru from 7 AM to 11 AM.
The drive-thru is the ONLY thing running in the morning too. The dining room won't be open at all. The same sign is posted on the locked front door.
Dunkin isn't alone. Several businesses have had to cut back hours over a lack of employees.
Six Flags Great Escape in Queensbury, New York recently announced the park would be closed for two days each week due to the lack of staff. "The theme park and outdoor water park will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This will allow us to offer a more enjoyable in-park experience the rest of the week, including extending operating hours on the days we are open."
Black Stallion Closing Sundays
The Black Stallion restaurant in Vernon closed one extra day a week. The Vullo family said they would close Sundays in addition to Monday and Tuesday "due to lack of available employees and in order to give the much deserved time off to our valued staff."
Cavallo's Closing Sundays
Cavallo's closed on Sundays too, at least until Labor Day. "We need to give our staff a day off, with being so short-handed."
Grandma Brown's Baked Beans
The famous Grandma Brown's baked bean have been difficult to find for months. Store shelves have been empty. The company in Mexico, New York is dealing with the same problems - lack of staff. Once the staff is back to full capacity, stores will be back to full shelves of the famous baked beans. When? That's another question.
