The Ripple Effect Rising Food Costs Are Having On Restaurant Workers

It's no secret that inflation is hitting consumers hard across all sectors. For many people, even paying for necessities like groceries and gas is becoming increasingly difficult. To put it into perspective, it was reported that the rate of inflation is the highest it's been in over 40 years, per CNBC. In terms of food, even common items like eggs have increased dramatically in price. While there are a variety of reasons for the current inflation crisis, organizations like the World Economic Forum point the finger at supply chain issues spurred by COVID-19, the ensuing consumer demand for goods, and the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

If you've recently found that it is much easier to get a table at your favorite restaurant, you may have just experienced another consequence of rising prices that has hurt the purchasing power of our money at gas stations and grocery stores.

Black Box Intelligence tells The Wall Street Journal that because of higher prices, 3% fewer people ate at casual dining restaurants like Olive Garden, Applebee's, and Chili's between April to June of this year when compared to the same time last year.

Interview with Racheli Visman, CEO and Co-Founder at SavorEat. Can you tell us a little about SavorEat and how it was founded?. The idea behind SavorEat came to me six years ago. At the time I was the COO of a MedTech company and was dealing with health issues that severely limited my diet. One day while grocery shopping, I had a vision of a robot that prepares the exact delicious meal I was craving, only healthy and aligned with my diet.
