Ohio Restaurants Raise Prices Amid Hiring Problems and Supply Chain Woes

ORA CEO said Ohio eateries probably raised prices by 4 percent

Longtime patrons of Barrel and Boar, a Columbus restaurant chain, likely noticed steeper bills over the last few months. Stan Riley, a member of the family that owns the chain, said prices went up between 15% and 20%.

Those percentages, while high, only cover a portion of the extra costs Barrel and Boar incurred during the coronavirus pandemic.
