The vice president of Atlantic Restaurants Canada says Hurricane Dorian impacted many restaurants throughout the region.
Luc Erjavec says restaurants lost out on some good business.
"Most businesses were closed Saturday, many lost Sunday, many lost Monday," Erjavec explained. "The bigger cost for us would be the loss of business associated with the hurricane."
Erjavec says the power outages resulted in many restaurants suffering losses in perishibles.
"Many would have back-up plans in terms of generators or trying to use the food up before it goes," said Erjavec.
He says September is typically a busy time of year for restaraunts.
