Given the inflation rates, eateries in Mexicali are expected to increase prices after January, according to media reports.
Restaurant Chamber President Rodrigo Terán told La Voz newspaper that the industry has been affected by the increase in item costs, as well as the pandemic.
Last year, the Nation observed a 25.4 percent decline in tourism, while Restaurants went beyond — 33.4 percent.
Terán told the newspaper that the year’s end season is good for eateries, so prices could increase by the beginning of next year.
State Covid-19 protocols limit Restaurant occupancy to 75 percent.
Terán said even though the border was reopened, Restaurants are still seeing a significant Flux of customers.
