Bristol Seafood Sees Strong Retail Sales Amid Pandemic-Fueled Home Cooking Boom

Bristol Seafood in Portland saw much of its food service business shrink when the pandemic limited or closed restaurants, but it found a boon in expanding its line of quick-to-prepare meals as more people cooked at home.

Sales have increased dramatically since more people are cooking at home, and they’ve helped shore up some of the losses in its mainstay food service business.
