Having employees not show up for their shifts always throws a wrench in the works for small businesses, and nowhere is that more true than in the food industry.
For Thai Food Huntly in Huntly, New Zealand, Thursday was a very stressful day. The small Thai restaurant was packed with dine-in customers and had a line of people waiting to pick up their take-out.
The problem? There was only one person on deck. Thankfully, he was the chef, so food was being made — but not much else was getting done.
“So we went to our favorite Thai food place in Huntly to find out it was packed,” she shared early Friday. “The tables were filled, people lined up waiting to pay, to order or to pick up.”
