Wendy’s Ditches the Dollar Menu

Wendy’s Ditches the Dollar Menu

While customers love the dollar menu at fast food restaurants like Wendy’s, the store itself may not be as big a fan. In fact, many other fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Taco Bell are also looking for ways to boost the bottom line while leaving the value menus that customers love. For restaurants, the dollar menu is very much a double-edged sword. The Value of the Dollar Menu The actual purpose of the dollar menu at a Wendy’s location is to encourage customers to spend well over one dollar. Order a single burger for a dollar and then add a drink...

No Gift This Christmas?

False Delivery Dates On Sears Website Justflowers - ***, shabby and wrong item in order. Was a huge mistake!!! Sometimes we do everything right, but things still go terribly wrong. How is it that we order the gift with time to spare but it still doesn’t arrive? Or perhaps the item that was in stock when you ordered is suddenly back ordered by the time it’s ready to be shipped? Or worse yet, the gift that does arrive isn’t anything like what you bought and paid for. Sometimes Christmas presents aren’t quite as merry as we’d like them to be. And sometimes there isn’t a...

Luxor Linens - Deal NOT honoured FRAUDULENT Luxor Linens - Never received my sheets Luxor Linens - Just another pissed off customer!!! Based on recent reviews, Living Social is learning a hard lesson. But it does appear to be learning that lesson, at least.

Breyers Ice Cream - Review about Ice Cream Taste from Shreveport, Louisiana You can’t get away with very much when your business is ice cream. One company learned this the hard way when they changed their recipe after decades of making ice cream in a simple, perfect way.

The Original Recipe For years this ice cream company sold its products on pure ingredients. The ingredients were, in fact, pure. Sugar and...

Planet Fitness steals & lies to its clients!! Planet Fitness - Awful Every one of us has decided to be healthier at some point. Eat better foods. Exercise. Maybe get a gym membership.
