SAN ANTONIO – A favorite San Antonio breakfast and brunch spot, Magnolia Pancake Haus, is making some changes in the interest of a “more balanced life,” the restaurant said on social media.
On Monday, the owners announced that the restaurants would be closed on Tuesdays in April. The change affects all three of the company’s locations – Embassy Oaks, Medical Center and Cibolo.
The message states that the day off will give staff members time to recuperate.
“A balanced life is important to us and it was extremely difficult to achieve this last year, so we are doing what we believe is in the best interests of our teams,” the message reads.
A statement on the Magnolia Pancake Haus website adds that the past year has “really challenged us in so many ways.”
The restaurant said it would reassess the closure at the end of the month.
Restaurants across the United States have been hit hard by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, from forced closures and labor shortages to rising prices and supply issues.
Of 11 major industries in the US economy, six have regained all the jobs they lost during the pandemic recession. Most other industries are pretty close.
The only exception is leisure and hospitality, which includes restaurants, bars, hotels, amusement parks and other forms of leisure. One of America’s largest employers, leisure and hospitality still has 1.5 million fewer jobs than before the pandemic, down 8.7%.
