Inflation and Reviews
Harold’s in the Heights, a Houston restaurant, is the setting for a business lunch. Everyone, even Patrick Amante, the proprietor of a graphics design firm, has been affected by the same suffering.
Amante says that “inflation and supply chain, generally, have had a big effect on the company.”
The term “SHRINKFLATION” confuses customers as businesses try to make money during an inflation spike.
Amante says he’s observed a change in the things he’s gotten from suppliers as inflation increases.
It’s possible, Amante speculates, that they’re shrinking the size while maintaining the price.
Restaurant Association chief executive Michelle Korsmo said that inflation is also hurting her business.
“Wholesale food costs have increased by 13% in the past year for eateries. In the last five decades, we’ve experienced the largest wholesale food price growth.” Korsmo
According to Alli Jarrett, the owner of Harold’s in the Heights Restaurant in Houston, smaller items are becoming more common from suppliers as inflation rises.
You may have seen on the bigger providers that their packs are smaller, so they don’t have to raise the price of the pack as much, but the price has increased anyway, adds Jarrett.
