Why stop selling vegetarian dishes?


Dear editor:

Every year during the Vegetarian Festival I ask myself, why do most of those restaurants stop selling all these delicious vegetarian dishes as soon as the festival is over? I noticed some of the restaurants do tremendously better business during the festival than they do the rest of the year. It doesn’t make sense for a restaurant to stop selling the very food that is bringing in the customers.

A few years ago the National Restaurant Association in America noted there was a growing demand for vegetarian food and urged restaurants to have more vegetarian dishes.

I’m not saying these restaurants have to go vegetarian. I’m just asking why they can’t continue to serve these dishes all year around since so many people enjoy them.
