In a panel discussion at the Fast Casual Executive Summit, Layne’s Chicken Fingers COO Samir Wattar offered insight in a discussion about the supply chain issues restaurants have faced over the last two years.

Wattar also detailed some measures Layne’s had to take, including changing their packaging and sourcing chicken from a different supplier.
