How Much Covid-19 Cost Those Businesses That Stayed Open
 
According to a Wall Street Journal article, businesses might be seeing high costs due to staying open during the pandemic, due to new cleaning procedures and increases pay for frontline employees.
 
Some of these businesses include:

  • Target
    • $1 billion
  • Walmart
    • $900 million
  • Kroger
    • $830 million

 
"We do expect some COVID-related costs to continue beyond the first quarter as we continue to invest in associate and customer safety as well as support heightened digital demand," said Kroger Co. Chief Financial Officer Gary Millerchip in the above WSJ article.
 
Dog Haus is at the Forefront of the Virtual Kitchen Movement
 
A Restaurant News article highlighted Dog Haus, which in April 2019 became the first brand to commit to a multi-year deal with Kitchen United. Dog Haus currently has two virtual kitchens in Chicago and Pasadena.
 
"Virtual kitchen's offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Dog Haus to bring its unique, chef-driven menu to people when and where they want a good meal," said Dog Haus Partner André Vener in the above Restaurant News article. "Food delivery is booming. Well over half of modern-day consumers in the U.S. get delivery at least once a week, which translates to huge opportunities for businesses that can keep up. But Dog Haus isn't just keeping up, we are leading the charge. We believe that it's important to embrace the changes happening in this part of our industry. It's not only an enormous growth opportunity but also an amazing way to serve our handcrafted creations to current and future Dog Haus fanatics in one fell swoop."
