Mexico, September 30th. The Vice President of the National Restaurant Association (Canirac), Mr. Germán Gonzélez, stated on Tuesday that the pandemic and associated restrictions could force the closure of a total of 122,000 restaurants.
Speaking at a press conference to promote an upcoming Mexico Food Expo, Gonzélez said that “about 17,000 restaurants in the greater Mexico City metropolitan area have not reopened after being forced to close in March. Some 90,000 restaurants have closed since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, and about 30,000 more may follow. As a result of the pandemic, many restaurants have fewer diners and lower revenue. Many restaurant owners have had to dip into their savings to continue operating, and many exhausted their saving”, said Mr. Gonzélez.
