Joe Rogers III, Waffle House executive vice president, told Newsmax TV on Tuesday the restaurant franchise's reopening process has been "slow" and "methodical," and it might be years before it finishes.
Rogers told "American Agenda" that Waffle House closed about 600 or 700 locations due to the coronavirus outbreak and only a few have started reopening, with no way of knowing for how long the rest will remain closed.
"In the last week or so, I would say that we started a very long and gradual recovery process," he said. "I think there's a misconception out there that this reopening is occurring, but . . . it's a very slow, methodical, drawn-out recovery.
"And we're trying to help America take that first step forward, leading our way back into some sense of normalcy. But it's going to take quite a lot of time – months, even years – before we can get back to, possibly, the way things were before."
