You guys have me all wrong.
My only point is why bicker over a few cents on somthing so insignificant and just make it the right way?
Patriots has it right, the higher brand name product isnt that much more and I really really think Krustys product is inferior and I think the company understands that.
So trying to pinch a few pennies on a sub product makes no sense to me.
To those who think the product is great, try getting a GREAT product and compare…make two batches and try them out on your employees and see what they think.
The color, the quality, the taste…no comparisons.
I just dont get it…you guys come on here and pinch pennies on everything and seem to care so highly about quality, then you would put out a bad product, and it isnt just me who acknowledges how bad the product is. It is priced barely above the house name anywhere you buy it, and it is pretty obvious the quality isnt very good.
If you guys want me to be honest, and Nick maybe this is pointed at you since you brought up the subject and seem to have issues…
You mention cheesecake, do you buy a higher quality product or just accept Sysco base product? Have you guys compared the base cheesecake from a place like Sysco? It sucks…
I just see value in spending a LITTLE more and selling/giving somthing that really WOWs your customers…especially on an upsell.
You guys talk about the value in better wings, in higher quality cheese, all these very high cost items but then you pinch on brownie mix?
Well to each their own, but I would never sell or give away a Krusty product, not even if my vendor gave the mix to me for free.
When I go to regular places, say an indy shop for sandwhiches or pizza, I can always tell if they are cheaping on side items or dessert items and I dont get why people would put somthing on the menu that sucks.
Enough rant…you guys go make the Krustys, I will pay an extra buck and get somthing I want to eat and my employees want to eat…
