You know, you could make a case that the course of this recovery such as it is, Khun best be traced through the restaurant business. The big chains to be more clear about that. Friendlies filed Chapter 11 over the weekend, joining Pizza Hut and Chuck E. Cheese and the Benko did yen in bankruptcy court. Some change, though, are booming to police says it plans to hire another 10,000 people. So marketplaces Sabrin Benesch or gets us going with who is winning and who is not as we stress eat our way through this pandemic. Right down the street from John Gordon's house, there was a Burger king that recently shut down. Working is one of the global brands that's gotten over stored in the United States and even in the rest of the world. Gordon is an analyst with Pacific Management Consulting Group, He says a lot of chains knew even before the pandemic. They had too many locations. Now they're downsizing. But a lot of chains are also adapting at that same corner where the Burger King was. There was a Starbucks. They closed and they just moved into the Burger King. Now they have a brand new store with a drive through, which is going to double their sales easily in a pandemic, the less contact with customers of the better and the chains that can pull that off are doing all right. Pizza chains that deliver have mostly done well. Chipotle is expected to grow its drive through stores from 100 to 1000 in the next five years, according to Andrew Charles, restaurant analyst with Cohen.

Besides the temperature check, I had to write my name, phone number and address on a list so contact tracers can reach me if there's a covert outbreak. And for a very brief moment, I thought I hope this doesn't somehow lead to marketing emails and calls you are quite mainstream Americans are really concerned and confused on and feeling out of control about their their privacy.

Those who identify as Hispanic less likely than others, and younger Americans are less likely to engage with contact tracers. And while most Americans would quarantine if asked, 32% would have some difficulty doing so, so essential workers were probably more likely to fall in that category.
