— Wisconsin’s tourism hubs are expecting a flood of visitors to enjoy the state’s recreation, food and event offerings. But businesses fear they won’t have the staff to accommodate them.
Door County is gearing up for its busy season, which is usually a bell curve of visitors from May to October. The northeastern destination’s largest economic driver is tourism. The peninsula is popular for its scenery, cherries and wine, among other things.
Based on visitor inquiries to the county’s website alone, Destination Door County Communications Director Jon Jarosh says travel interest is far greater than last year. Jarosh anticipates a busier season than that of 2019, when the state set new records for tourism.
So businesses are looking for workers. Jarosh noted that demand for staff is not unique to Door County or even Wisconsin — it’s a nationwide issue.
