In the email, Pankratz happily shares that stimulus checks have expired and that corner shops are struggling to offer competitive wages, driving “more potential employees into the hiring pool.”

The favorable labor market gives his company the opportunity to hire employees “at a lower wage”.

Atlanta-based American Franchise Capital owns and operates Taco Bell and Applebee’s restaurants in nine states with annual sales in excess of $200 million.

Wayne Pankratz, Applebee's mid-level manager, says higher gas prices are great for business because most employees can live check-to-check and hopefully start cutting wages.
