All 97 locations of Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes are officially closed. The coronavirus pandemic has affected several businesses and now we can add this endless soup and salad buffet chain to the list.
According to CEO John Haywood, he stated: "The FDA had previously put out recommendations that included discontinuing self-serve stations, like self-serve beverages in fast food, but they specifically talked about salad bars and buffets. The regulations are understandable, but unfortunately, it makes it very difficult to reopen. And I’m not sure the health departments are ever going to allow it."
What else do you think will be a part of the "new norm?"
