We here in the country do not eat out much, But, we have tasted the cheapened quality that's occurring . The poor service of staff and less than ideal cleanliness. But if a bunch of these go under it changes the business / towns landscape. Shawnee OK was rated #1 in the country for fast food restaurants per capita . If they were to lose a slew of those it would be like the old oil boom towns that are small ghost towns of today.Quizno’s going bankrupt? You don’t say! I guess using large rats in ads for food was, and still is, a terrible idea.
Most of those restaurants are going broke because they got bought by larger food companies, cheapened their food quality, let service and cleanliness lapse and just generally suck!
There’s an insanely high failure rate for restaurants in their first year. I don’t remember the exact percentages, but restaurants that survive their first year are the exception, not the rule.All in all, the food industry is perhaps the least forgiving. Restaurants tend to fail at a higher rate than other businesses.
They were all failing before the pandemic, some 5+ years before. Why would we even want to keep many of those places around? Most of them are awful.We all know that the world around us is being hit hard. Drive thru's alone won't keep'em afloat.
