“Generally speaking the restaurant industry is longer hours, harder to work in scenarios than say a 9 to 5 desk job,” said Patrick. Patrick said things are getting better but he could use more employees so he can staff lunch during the week again. Patrick said it’s tough competing with companies like Amazon and FedEx that are hiring and raising hourly wages.

Before the pandemic, 21 people worked at Rizzo’s on South Main. “We are paying a little more an hour than we normally would but at the end of the day if it’s worth it, it’s worth it and right now, it’s worth it,” said Patrick.

That number shrank to eight once COVID restrictions hit the restaurant industry. Have questions about the spread of coronavirus? We have an entire section dedicated to coverage of the outbreak. CLICK HERE for more.

At one point, Patrick was so short-staffed he was working alone in the kitchen. “A few days, a few weeks ago I cooked by myself in the kitchen for four days, the good thing is I’m good at what I do,” said Patrick. Patrick said another factor is extended unemployment benefits, giving people greater freedom to remain home.
