Why a second wave might be worse for restaurant-landlord relations

This week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” features real estate attorney Stephen Cohen, who has recommendations on lease negotiations.

A second wave of the coronavirus could be worse for restaurants than the first.

This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Stephen Cohen, a solo practice attorney who works with a wide range of restaurants on real estate issues, including Dunkin’, Famous Dave’s, Caribou Coffee and many others.

Cohen discusses the pandemic’s impact on leases, and why relations between operators and landlords have been relatively good thus far. But he worries that a second wave of the virus and corresponding sales challenges could cause problems, potentially leading more severe real estate problems for operators.

He also discusses how operators should approach lease negotiations coming out of the pandemic.
