The restaurant industry is in the midst of a complete and total meltdown that is unlike anything that we have ever seen before.
If you ask Google how many restaurants there are in the United States, it will tell you that there are 660,755, although that number is a few years old.
But for the purposes of this article, that is a good enough estimate. Americans love to eat out, and restaurant workers are some of the hardest working people in the entire country.
So it is incredibly sad to see more restaurants constantly going under.
In some cases, restaurants that have served their communities for decades are deciding to permanently close their doors.
For example, over the weekend Sammy’s Roumanian Steakhouse in New York City announced that it had finally reached the end of the road.
Landmark New York City restaurant Sammy’s Roumanian Steakhouse has closed its iconic basement-level doors as the coronavirus pandemic continues to cripple the restaurant industry.
