Chicken right now is more expensive, but beef is down. Fruit and vegetable is in pretty good shape,” he said. “But dry groceries, consumables is where we’re seeing the most stubborn and persistent inflation, mid-double-digit inflation. And we’re not hearing from our suppliers looking forward that’s going to come down soon.”
