NEWS FLASH! Pizza Patron accepts pesos! ...Marketing ploy?

It’s gonna be big news tomorrow.

Is this really a big deal, or just a way for them to get national attention (& a resultant sales boost from the hype)?

yes- big PR stunt- well done too.

Well, at least in northern Mexico you can pay with dollars in almost every place (which includes all food chains like Mcdonalds, Pizza Hut, etc, etc).

Thought you might find this interesting.

Crafty PR stunt for sure!

I’m aware that much of Mexico accepts US$, but it’s just not common practice in this country.

Eduardo: Do you operate a business in Mexico?
If so, are you having to pay bribes to gov’t officials in order to get things done (that is what I commonly hear about doing business down there)?

No, not really. No bribes.

But if you need something done “today” you could certainly find a way to achieve it.
