A Word about Lenny & Joe's Holiday Gift Cards
For the last 4 years our restaurants faced challenges and hurdles that remain for us and everyone in business and especially our industry. Food costs, especially seafood, have literally doubled and tripled from just a few years ago. Virtually all supply costs have greatly increased. The minimum wage increases, and labor shortage is real, and we have been hit with incredibly higher payrolls. Utility rates, insurance and credit cards fees continue to soar.
We are thankful to have so many long-time employees that have enabled us to keep open and operating with regular hours. The "supply chain" dilemma has also put more pressure on our operations.
We had no choice but to take some increases in our prices to continue operations. We are very sensitive to how these price increases affect our customers and are always looking for ways to lessen the impact by keeping them as reasonable as possible. We continually look at our prices with other fresh seafood restaurants and we know that our prices comparatively offer great value to our customers.
We are now working on razor thin margins. Consequently, offering a discounted GIFT CARD promotion cannot happen without creating more pressure and need to raise our prices further.
Thank you for your support, understanding, and loyalty. All of us at Lenny and Joe's remain optimistic for the future of Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale and the restaurant industry,
We will certainly continue to have Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale Gift Cards available for your holiday shopping. They are the perfect gift for family, friends, employees, and neighbors. We do hope that our food, service, portions and prices will still make visiting our restaurants a wonderful experience and worth the ride from anywhere.
Lenny, Joe and Jim
