After receiving calls and emails with questions like, “How come you are closed and every other restaurant is open are you still open for takeout?” (sic), I feel compelled to provide an answer. First off not every restaurant is open. For those that are, they are restricted to serving take-out food only. Ontario is slightly different in that they can also sell booze to go! Most large, full-service restaurants are shuttered completely as the variable costs of being open are too high and take-out food is generally not their forte. Joe E Cheesy’s Snack Shack exists to serve the take-out food market and is a brand new business that needs cash flow like any other business. However, in the midst of this unexpected chaos, we faced a huge dilemma that we could not reconcile. Given all the information we devoured about the COVID-19 virus, seeing what is happening in Canada, the United States and around the globe, and what the provincial and federal governments have asked us to do (actually they’re ordering us now because things are getting worse), we concluded that closing the restaurant was the responsible way to go. This was a personal choice, nothing more, nothing less.

Our quandary is that we need staff to do the cooking, although I have been known to make a decent meal for 2-4 people in one day. After deliberating back and forth, our internal jury returned the verdict; we had no right to put the health of employees in peril for a non-essential service like take-out food. Even if we ourselves could do all the cooking, the risk of “feeding” the pandemic would increase regardless of adopting new anti-virus hygiene protocols. Why so is beyond the scope of this post. If you have not taken time to learn anything about COVID-19, it’s high time you did. Admittedly it’s discouraging and confounding when the media report citizens carrying on with their lives totally oblivious to the current state of affairs, or buying into fake news or conspiracy theories, and blatantly violating directives set up to protect us. It’s even more weird when you see government personnel and elected officials making non-essential activities somehow essential for them. Stay safe!
