WilmingtonBiz Talk: Restaurant Industry Check-in

By Vicky Janowski, posted May 20, 2021
Memorial Day is around the corner and with it the unofficial start to the summer tourism season. But as visitors already start flocking to the area, area restaurants are navigating shortages in available workers, changes in COVID-19-related rules and additional SBA loan options for restaurant owners.

On Thursday's WilmingtonBiz Talk, two local owners discussed those issues and other updates on the restaurant industry: Dean Neff, chef and owner of the newly opened Seabird restaurant, and Jud Watkins, owner of Wrightsville Beach Brewery.

View the full conversation below. Also listen to this and future weekly WilmingtonBiz Talk discussions on the Business Journal's new podcast, available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.

 BizTalk is livestreamed on the Business Journal's Facebook page each week at noon Thursday. For notifications on upcoming topics, sign up for newsletters at wilmingtonbiz.com/register and to submit topic or speaker ideas, email [email protected].
