Twin Cities companies weigh vaccine mandates, incentives as they form return-to-work plans


Anthony Souffle, Star Tribune

Christian Guallpa, a dish washer at Broders' Pasta Bar in Minneapolis, got a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine from Dr. Abby Houts at a clinic set up for employees this week.

Charlie Broder remembers being in tears when his family's business eliminated the jobs of 150 people at Broders' Restaurants at the start of the pandemic.

Many came back when the restaurants, all at 50th Street and Penn Avenue in Minneapolis, reopened with carryout service. To restart dining service, Broder arranged for on-site vaccinations against the coronavirus, which helped 90% of workers get protection.

"The vaccine's reality is the reason why we can reopen safely and confidently for ourselves and our staff, as well as the guests," said Broder, who hopes indoor dining will resume within a few weeks. "This is hopefully, for us, going to be one of the last times that we have to reinvent ourselves."
