Idaho business forced to temporarily close 2 locations due to labor shortage

BOISE, Idaho — It’s no secret that businesses across the Gem State are struggling to find employees. One restaurant, 208 Pho and Vegan, has had to temporarily close two of its locations due to the lack of workers.


An Ngyuen, the owner of the Vietnamese restaurant, has three locations of 208 Pho and Vegan. The location on Front Street in Downtown Boise has been closed for four weeks. Ngyuen purchased a building on Overland Road, where the old Rockies Diner used to be, in 2020 when business was booming. That location has not yet opened for business.
