The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many difficult hiring challenges for business owners.

Lucianne Morello, the owner of Aunt Lulu’s Pizza and Kitchen in Boca Raton says business is great, but they can’t find people to hire.

Morello opened the pizza restaurant after the restaurant she was working at closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I was devastated,” Morello said.

Morello said she took the opportunity to open her own place, and so far the community has loved her Italian food.

“I thought when I was opening, I was providing jobs,” Morello said.

Now they are trying to hire people to help keep their business going.

“I get applications but then when it’s time to set up the interview and you don’t hear back, “Morello said.

Morello has been working almost six to seven days a week because we can’t find staff, “said Jorge Rivadeneira.

So far, her customers have been pretty understanding and realize that it may take longer for deliveries and orders.
