Waffle House CEO confirms zero evidence of coronavirus spread from 2,000+ locations

Biz Pac Review:

“I don’t think it makes sense at all,” Ehmer replied. “And what the data is now starting to show us is that shutting down restaurant dining rooms virtually has no impact on reducing the spread.”

The CEO of Waffle House revealed that there has been “zero evidence” of any coronavirus spread across any of the chain’s more than 2,000 locations in the nation.

Walter Ehmer called out the “devastating impact” on the American people that the coronavirus lockdowns have had, discussing the restrictions being imposed on restaurants during an interview with Fox News on Sunday. The breakfast chain’s CEO noted that Waffle House has “proven” that the data doesn’t support the strict orders being implemented by local and state governments.

“Are the lockdowns you all are facing now making sense given the science?” Fox News’ Leland Vittert, co-anchor of “America’s News Headquarters,” asked Ehmer Sunday as Congress was debating the latest coronavirus relief bill.

“I don’t think it makes sense at all,” Ehmer replied. “And what the data is now starting to show us is that shutting down restaurant dining rooms virtually has no impact on reducing the spread.”

“And what it does have is a certain devastating impact on the millions of people in this industry that look to restaurants to provide their livelihood for their families, to put roofs over their head and, at this time of year, to buy Christmas presents for their kids,” Ehmer added.

“It’s having a devastating impact on people and yet there’s no data to indicate that it’s helping to reduce the spread,” he contended.

Ehmer admitted he does not understand the insistence by governors and mayors to shut down indoor dining and implement more restrictions on restaurants in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“I think it’s a very visible thing. It’s wrong to pick out certain people, certain businesses to say these are essential and these are not. Every job is essential to the person that has it,” he said, adding that leadership isn’t serving Americans well by singling out one industry or another.
