Restaurants and Other Businesses Struggling to Find Workers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The latest jobs report from the U.S. Department of Labor shows roughly 916,000 people were hired in March. It’s one of the highest employment numbers since August.
Despite that fact, there's a hiring struggle taking place in Hampton Roads. Employers need more people to work.
“It’s been very difficult to hire. I mean, we’re putting ads in Indeed and everywhere to look for really high-qualified employees, and it’s just that they're not coming in for the interviews," said Y-Not Italian owner Tony DiSilvestro who has eight restaurant locations across Hampton Roads.

He said his team has been working hard throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that some COVID-19 restrictions have been eased, he could use more people.
“We need over 120 employees right now," said DiSilvestro. “A lot of people just got their stimulus checks so I think we will see a little lull before people are ready to come back to work."
DiSilvestro said he believes his staff will be ready to serve the community better by the time summer gets here.
“I know the jobs report added a lot of jobs. But that doesn’t mean necessarily that everybody is ready to come back to work. And I think businesses are starting to open now. so what I think is happening is you having a shortage of employees because business is all opening back up at once," said DiSilvestro.
The Virginia Beach Restaurant Association sent 13News Now a statement that DiSilvestro is not the only business owner in need of qualified workers.
"The members of the Virginia Beach Restaurant Association are in need of employees in all areas of their restaurants. From front of the house, hostesses, servers and bartenders to back of the house all areas of the kitchen. Covid combined with the additional and ongoing federal assistance has the shortage of employees at an all time high," said VBRA Executive Director Stacey Shiflet.
Shiflet said if anyone is interested in working in the hospitality industry to call (757) 513-5954 or email [email protected].

A number of small businesses in Hampton Roads businesses said they're in desperate need of new hires.

So in case you don’t know, Spark Factory has a killer online mobile ordering system for restaurants. We also do loyalty programs & delivery 🚚 programs in any city to help small business owners recover from Covid. Sysco’s Executive chef of Hampton Roads made that killer pulled pork street taco! And many more!

Hi, I purchased a gift certificate on 7/21 and have yet to receive it. Can you please help me with that?
Never received my gift certificate nor any response to phone calls or emails. Good thing it’s on a charge card...I’ll be able to get the money back.
Hello Everyone! I am a VBCPS teacher and thought I would post the new school time start proposal survey for you all. My brother owns a local restaurant and I know these time changes will directly impact his ability to hire high school students. Right now, there is only one proposed school start time option that releases high school students before 4 o'clock. This is Option D on the survey. Please complete the survey and have your voices be heard. I know so many of my high school students work in your local restaurants and want to keep doing so!
How is your competition is getting customers? I've prepared a case study to show how we got a restaurant on the first page of google and how one restaurant increased sales by 27% and improved attitudes towards the food and attitudes towards the restaurant. I've included a link to a study on how one restaurant increased tips for servers by 18%-21% more. It's a classy way to have repeat business and retain your customer for repeat business! Click the link to see this study https://Best-Restaurant-Websites.com You will see a lot of things that IT Techs won't show you. :) I'll be checking in tomorrow (Monday) to answer questions.
Looking for a new place to eat this weekend. Any ideas?
