Restaurant Business is the leading media brand in the commercial foodservice industry, with a focus on entrepreneurship, innovation and growth. This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Stephen Cohen, a solo practice attorney who works with a wide range of restaurants on real estate issues, including Dunkin’, Famous Dave’s, Caribou Coffee and many others. Cohen discusses the pandemic’s impact on leases, and why relations between operators and landlords have been relatively good thus far. But he worries that a second wave of the virus and corresponding sales challenges could cause problems, potentially leading more severe real estate problems for operators.
