Eric Rutledge, Owner and Operator of Deli Planet, said in a press release that the restaurant has had to close an additional day of the week and has only been open from Tuesday through Saturday, mostly due to a cook shortage.
Currently, the business is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., but beginning January 18, Deli Planet will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. for brunch and lunch five days a week.
The full menu will be offered starting at 6:30 a.m. for customers who don’t want brunch.
Rutledge said the effects of the pandemic have seriously affected the service industry. He said his business is facing a severe staffing shortage that influenced his decision to be closed two days a week instead of one.
