The catering industry is bracing itself for a top weekend on the coast
The struggle to find staff is harder than ever, also in the catering industry. And a heat wave in September makes it extra difficult. Emelie Lemmens and Shana Schroven, Brasserie Mali’s Middelkerke “There are people all the time. You don’t have 10 minutes free. I remember the night markets, for example. That’s intense. People who are constantly queuing to sit on your terrace. Sometimes you get You don’t have the chance to organize your table or there are already new people there. That’s intense.”
And apparently fewer people and student workers from us are willing to work in the catering industry. Foreign forces are increasingly proving to be a solution. For example, Nabiullah Sakhizada from Afghanistan. He finds work in the catering industry perfect. “I have to help in the kitchen, sometimes in the hall, sometimes outside. I really like working here. I also have good bosses. I am also happy with my colleagues. It is a very good experience for me.”
And catering bosses are becoming more inventive. Some even work with 2 serving robots. And so they will keep it up for a while this great weekend.
