Restaurant In Michigan Is Charging Customers A ‘COVID-19 Surcharge’
A restaurant in Michigan is getting heat for trying to exploit the coronavirus pandemic. Goog’s Pub & Grub in Holland, Michigan, is under fire for adding a COVID-19 surcharge to guest’s orders.
The owner, Brad White, explained to TMZ that he’d added the charge to cover skyrocketing prices for both food and restaurant supplies. “White says his joint added an extra 86 cents to all bills to factor in to-go bags, silverware, condiments and styrofoam containers since, at this moment, restaurants in Michigan are limited to delivery and take-out only.” He also says that a case of beef was $50 before the pandemic, and the price is now $96 per case.
