EUGENE, Ore. -- La Perla Pizzeria owner Gianni Barofsky is buying less products from his food suppliers than normal.
"Proteins are going up in price," Barofsky said. "Availability is tough."
Barofsky is hoping a limited seating dinning room will help as his restaurant begins reopening for sit-down service.
"If we've got 40 percent less seats and our food cost goes up by 20 percent it's a difficult lift," Barofsky said.
A pizza at La Perla Pizzeria costs anywhere from $11.50 to $17.50. Barofsky says that won't change even with the increased price in goods.
Mezza Luna Pizzeria's Sandy Little hasn't seen an increase in food price from his suppliers. However, Little says he is stocking up just in case.
"Pork products we're buying big," Little says. "Honestly, we don't necessarily know what's next. It's a very difficult thing to plan for."
Little has seen a shortage in products other than meat. He says he can't get dry activated yeast for at least three months.
That's when Little calls other local restaurants to help out.
"Sometimes we're just borrowing and trading with other businesses," Little says. "I don't think we've been hit as hard as they have on the east coast, certainly."
