Eggs are expensive. For bakeries and breakfast joints, the pain is multiplied
January 20, 2023
If the price of a dozen eggs at the grocery store seems severe, imagine cracking hundreds per day.
Diners, bakeries and other businesses that go through eggs by the case, not the dozen, say the impact of the past year's spike in egg prices is staggering.
"We're paying $2,000 more per week compared to this time last year," said Sam Turner, owner of the Nicollet Diner in Minneapolis, which brings in about $10,000 in revenue a day. "That can be very painful."
