A.J. Crawford Michelle Pederson English 101-11 October 21, 2014 “Midas Burger for some Chicken” Midas Burger has been in business for 49 years and is one of the top places to eat in Arab, AL or around the south for that matter; just ask a regular customer. Try them one time and I guarantee you will become one of their regular customers also. They have one small problem: sometimes you have to wait. You see, at Midas Burger they prepare each and every order at the time you order.
Company Overview Most people who live in the south, particularly Georgia, will recognize the antics of the Chick-Fil-A cows. For 17 years, their main mission has been to convert beef eaters into chicken eaters (“Chick-fil-A: Press Releases”). The “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign has brought about huge success for the Chick-Fil-A brand. They are the leading characters in the clever roadside billboards, as well as, the in store merchandising to promote the brand. As a matter of fact, Chick-Fil-A accredits this campaign for increasing their sales six-fold.
The restaurant immediately won over customers and critics with their unique flavors and fresh ingredients. They have a variety of Mexican foods, including burritos, tacos, taco salads, nachos, quesadillas, soups, and their own signature flavors. Qdoba restaurants are set up as a build your own dish buffet. You can enjoy one of their offered signature dishes to you can specifically pick the items you want to enjoy. You begin by choosing from pulled pork, adobo-marinated grilled steak and chicken, slow-roasted shredded beef or seasoned ground beef, or you can choose to go vegetarian.
Because of customer demand the chain began to open stand alone restaurants in 1986, it now has 938 stand alone restaurants around the country. To be true to their mission “Be America's Best Quick-Service Restaurant” the company has drive through only restaurants for fast service and added convenience to their customer. Chick-Fil-A has also licensed, non-traditional outlets; this program allows licensees to serve delicious Chick-Fil-A food in settings such as college campuses, hospitals, airports, and business and industry locations. One creative approach that the company used was their advertising; this approach set them apart from other restaurants. The use of cows to put their restaurant out on the market was a success.
One reason is because it’s priceless being that it is printed out on all our customer receipts. The second reason is because it will bring people back to our restaurant or at least consider it. The final reason is that it will bring customers here during lunch hours. For many restaurants, there slowest hours are during the day so we figure that giving them this coupon to use before 3PM any day of the week will give us busier lunch hours and higher revenues each day of operation. I’ve seen this idea used in many famous restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, Starbucks, fast food places and
Advertising of fast food keeps costumers wanting more and more. Anytime costumers see the satisfying sandwich, instantly their mouth waters for the taste of it. Local grocery stores and convenient shops have ads and coupons from the local fast food franchises. The coupons increase the costumers appeal to the restaurant because of a possible discount and full belly. The situation is very ironic because the grocery stores with nutritious food advocates for fast food restaurants that are, in context, competing with their sales.
Working people constantly rely on high-calorie fast foods for lunch breaks or as a quick substitute for a meal for themselves and even the family. Whole Foods found a solution for their problems, through already prepared food. Their, “Whole Kitchen™, Whole Pantry™,” has already prepared meals from entrees, to appetizers, to desserts that are quick meal solutions. With the same quality as any of their other foods they allow for each customer to pick and choose a meal that is delicious with little to no time involved. If you find you have little time in the market but more time to cook the meals, monthly broachers put out by the company offer simple recipes that include all the ingredients and cooking or baking instructions.
A Big Mac is a well-known burger from the food restaurant McDonalds. In this paper I will talk about what kind of people would eat a big mac and where they would be found eating it. I will also talk a little about the culture of the big mac and back up my ideas with some evidence. The Big Mac is a food for an on the go person, not someone who is very athletic or cares about their body size and health. It can also be for college students because it is an easy way for them to get a meal that is going to fill them up and for a small price as they are more focused on school then getting a job.
The options are endless. In reference to the argument that fast food is the cause of obesity, Gene Grabowski, a spokesman for the Grocery Manufacturers of America, which represents the nation's biggest food companies, states, "These foods and beverages are safe, and consumers -- in some cases parents -- have to be the one to make the decisions about how much should be eaten. "(39) Barboza backs up Weintraub’s argument by explaining how parents need to regulate what they are feeding their children. They need to teach them that sugary sweets and fried food should be eaten in moderation, that portion control can make all the difference. Children are not only begging to be taught better eating habits, but better exercise habits as well.
For lunch and dinner, casados are the normCasado means married in Spanish and this enormous plate is matrimony of fresh salad, hearty beans, fluffy white rice and a serving of beef, pork, chicken or fish. Sometimes it is accompanied by a scrumptious fried platano to satisfy your sweet tooth by ordering pan de elote (corn bread), pudin (bread pudding) and tres leches (three milk sponge cake) for dessert. For something cold, head to the local grocery store for a trit ice cream sandwich. Thanks to such a diverse population, many nationalities are represented in the cuisine throughout the nation. In terms of Mediterranean food, Santa Teresa definitely takes the cake.
