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...

Taco Bell Reveals Ordering Online

Taco Bell doesn’t register with consumers as being a high end product. It’s actually not even in the middle where you might order ahead and pick-up take-out. Instead, most of us use Taco Bell as a form of craving eliminator. Want a taco? Taco Bell will have one for less than a dollar. Spending less than a dollar on a taco doesn’t exactly warrant home delivery. But Taco Bell is trying to change all of that with its latest revamp. While Taco Bell has made some changes over the years including adding hotly anticipated breakfast items and many new menu items,...

When Soup Makes You Sick

I Chewed into a BUG in my Light Savory Vegetable Barley Progresso soup at lunch today in my office. SProgresso Soup - Review about Vegetable Soup from New Brunswick, New Jersey Progresso Soup - Chemical taste in Artisan Bean Soup Progresso Soup - Chili There’s nothing better than a bit of hot soup when you’re feeling under the weather.

Breyers Ice Cream - Bad taste of Breyers Frozen Dairy Dessert just won't go away Breyers Ice Cream - CHANGE IS BAD! 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. Not, they make a “frozen dairy dessert” that has almost nothing in common with the original ice cream except perhaps temperature. They are both cold, but only one was met with a warm reception.

Big Trouble for a Big Burger

Red Robin - IT WAS NOT WORTH MY TIME There was nothing good I can say about Bellevue Squire Red Robin There are some restaurants that are permanent additions to our childhoods – the sort that have been around and been good for decades. There is nothing sadder, however, than when those restaurants start to go downhill. The family restaurant you’ve been visiting since you were a child was always somewhere you could order a good hamburger and enjoy friendly service, good food and an overall decent experience. It’s extremely frustrating to go back as an adult and discover that the good service and decent food you remember from...

I WATCHED THE DOMINO DELIVERYMAN URINATE IN MY DRIVEWAY AFTER DELIVERING MY ORDER We don’t even need to quote the above complaint – the title says it all. So, the pizza delivery guy took a piss in the client’s driveway. The (literally) pissed customer followed his offender to the store “to return his order and complain, and saw him handling another delivery order - without washing his hands! “ Naturally, if the guy did not have a decent place to pee between deliveries, how could he find a place for hands hygiene? And really, how long-shift drivers are supposed to deal with calls of nature? Public lavatories are not available in residential areas...
