Show Notes

This week on the Extra Serving podcast, a production of Nation’s Restaurant News’ Last Bite Network, NRN editors Holly Petre, Sam Oches and Ron Ruggless discussed the future of the Supreme Court and its stance on vaccines.

 

The recent ruling from the highest court in the country against the OSHA mandate set forth by President Biden (which was picked up by Starbucks and subsequently dropped in a similar fashion) set a precedent for the conservative leaning and pro-business court that may impact future vaccines. The team discusses the impact this may have for years to come as we see more diseases and COVID becomes endemic.

 

Also, the team discusses McDonald’s fourth quarter earnings which were just reported at the time of recording. The three editors talk about how the new promotion – TikTok menu hacks – is helping the company with supply chain issues and how TikTok and secret menu items can help other chains as well.

 

Plus, Ruggless spoke with the CEO of BurgerFi, Ian Baines, about the chain’s recent acquisition of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings and what it means for the future of the business.
