SIMSBURY, CT – Plan B Burger Bar in Simsbury has temporarily closed for indoor dining due to understaffing, the Hartford Courant reported. The restaurant will focus entirely on take-out, as the founder of the restaurant group said he has lost three cooks in recent weeks and lacks sufficient office staff for indoor dining.
According to The Hartford Courant, the Locals 8 Restaurants group has 12 other restaurants in towns across the state, which do not change their hours or limit service.
Staff shortages have been a problem for restaurants statewide.
Plan B Burger Bar will complete take-out orders from Wednesday to Sunday from 11:30 am to 8:30 pm
The restaurant’s website says, “There is currently no indoor dining area, but we will be back soon.”
On the Plan B Burger Bar Facebook page, the restaurant posted an article about the change of hours, claiming it had been “affected by the nationwide restaurant hiring crisis.”
“We don’t want to sacrifice the quality, service or life balance of our amazing staff who have already worked very hard,” the post read. “So we’re going to take the time we need to continue to hire and train incredible additional staff.”
