Mississippi Stories: Jeff Good

In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Editor-at-Large Marshall Ramsey sits down with Jeff Good about how Jackson’s continuing water crisis is pushing local independent restaurants to the brink.

Water is a huge part of a restaurant’s operation from drinks to food preparation to hand washing to ice and when drinks and ice have to be bought, dwindling profit margins (down 75% due to inflation) are stressed. Good speaks on behalf of other restaurants in Jackson and how leadership needs to start communicating to find a solution.
