The Baltimore Disturbance
There is too much of a spate in Baltimore’s restaurant industry which has caused many eateries and restaurants to face a closure. While State-run and National restaurants among the closures, the small business eateries were hardest hit according to real estate data. Unfortunately, even top-ranking restaurants like Bel-Loc Diner and Lenny’s Delicatessen have also not been able to escape the calamity. The reasons for such a sudden and serious misfortune to the restaurant industry vary. Restaurateurs and experts blame a multitude of factors, from increasing labor costs to high crime rates in the city, all along with a heavy competition among the restaurants and eateries that has been ever increasing. In such a situation, it has been difficult for the experts to quantify the closures, which makes the matter worse. Amidst a plethora of discussions and debates, sadly no solution to this problem has been hit upon. As of now, the restaurants are trying to improve their services and facilities to increase funds, in a vague hope to escape the deadly closure.
