Wendy’s says restaurants may face a shortage of many menu items, including hamburgers, as beef processors struggle to keep plants open during the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • U.S. meat manufacturers have indicated disruptions to food supplies are imminent as they are forced to shut down plants to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
  • Wendy’s said it would attempt to supply hamburgers to restaurants with 2-3 deliveries per week.
  • Wendy’s announced, “Beef suppliers across North America are currently facing production challenges. Because of this, some of our menu items may be in short supply from time to time at some restaurants in this current environment.”
