The Jindrak branch at Landstraße 70 will be closed for a longer period of time from Monday. Reason: The confectioner cannot find any employees.
“I want to protect my loyal employees, that’s why I do it, even if it hurts my heart,” master confectioner Leo Jindrak explains in an interview with “Krone” why his branch at Landstrasse 70 will be closed for longer from Monday.
Many people know it, the original Linzer Torte from Jindrak. The Konditorei has its parent company in the Herrenstraße. Since 1929, the pastry shop has been one of the most popular and successful in Austria.
Nevertheless, the lack of personnel in this industry does not stop at her. Leo Jindrak had to temporarily close his branch on Pöstlingberg in autumn – we reported in detail.
“Yes, I have decided to close the branch until further notice. We are currently missing five employees for sales and service. Nonetheless, I also do it for our loyal employees, because of course they want to go on their well-deserved vacation in the coming months,” says the trendy pastry chef.
However, Jindrak remains optimistic
However, Jindrak is optimistic that suitable staff will soon be found again. “If you always pin the lack of staff in the catering trade on the supposedly low wages of the employees, you make it too easy for yourself. We pay according to the confectioners’ collective, so you definitely don’t earn badly,” says the confectioner.
