Broward restaurant closes temporarily due to staffing shortage

Many businesses in South Florida are struggling to fill low-paying jobs. John Conlon hopes this is temporary. Once this changes, the Historic Dockers Restaurant in Dania Beach will be able to reopen.

Conlon said there were plenty of customers at the restaurant despite the coronavirus pandemic. The release of the COVID-19 vaccine increased consumer confidence. The challenge, he said, was in the back of the house.

“We needed five cooks; we had two. They were working 12 hours a day, almost seven days a week and at some point, they just can’t do it anymore,” Conlon said.
