Almost exactly a year ago, Jason Cassis of Equal Parts Hospitality was one of the first guests on the 905er Podcast, discussing the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry. He returns now to give us an update on all that has happened in the interim – and there is a lot.

While everybody knows that restaurants, bars and so many other businesses have been hurt by COVID, Jason’s description of the full spectrum of challenges – which are not likely to disappear quickly even if COVID is finally under control – is a must listen.

For the chain of hotels launched during the pandemic Jason mentions, see The Laundry Rooms.
