Junior’s pauses cheesecake production due to cream cheese shortage
Junior’s Cheesecake owner Alan Rosen says the famous chain is becoming a victim of their own success.
Orders have been pouring into Andrew Schuman's candy cane business this year, but business has been anything but sweet.
"We're not taking new orders from new customers," said Schuman, chief executive officer of Hammond's, based in Denver, Colorado. "We can't keep up with demand."

Candy makers, like retailers and farmers, have been slammed during the pandemic with high commodity prices, labor shortages, and transportation and supply chain snarls, preventing them from fully cashing in on the holiday season.
For more than a century, Hammond's Candies has twisted and packed up the classic Christmas treat for tiny gift shops and massive grocers alike. It is the largest wholesale supplier of U.S. handmade candy canes.
This year, Hammond's labor costs have increased 30%, yet staffing remains a problem: The company's 250-person crew is down nearly 100 people.
