False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers. Some of these practices include no warning labels on advertisements like there are on dangerous things like tobacco and confusing labels on food served that lead customers into eating more calories than intended. David Zinczenko advocates that it is some of the fast food companies fault for the decline in America’s general health. At the end, David chooses not to complain about the legalities, but instead encourages us to let the justice system do its work. In the article David Zinczenko discusses “Shouldn't we know better than to eat two meals a day in fast-food restaurants” we the people of America should know by now that it is
While theft and low income consumers bring the possibility of providing only moderate revenue gains, if not a loss, operating in impoverished areas can also be a source of growing potential for the business. Many companies advertise philanthropic missions, such as donating to charities every year or helping to provide for the families of their employees. While these are messages that consumers hear, a more powerful message can be the one that the consumers themselves see. Rather than closing down those stores, Company Q should focus on the reasons for the high crime, and offer ways to reduce that crime rate. Offering work programs that help prepare young people for management or skilled positions is a good way to take crime off of the streets while showing to the community that the business cares about the welfare of the population.
Outsourcing the cooking activity can hamper the quality of foods as the management department of the restaurant will not have any control over the quality of foods. Thus it can lose its customers. Buffalo Wild Wings is popular for the unique taste of the wings. Due to outsourcing of cooking it can lose the secret of that unique taste and thus can lose competitive
Fast food restaurants often give false perceptions of their foods. In recent years, people have actually launched lawsuits to fast food restaurants because they are vulnerable. Zinczenko’s article as a whole shows how fast food has affected our society. Some of his main points are influential, but as a whole I disagree on some things because fast food is not the main cause of obesity. I agree with Zinczenko on his critical viewpoint on how he looks at the fast food industry.
Social Responsibility EST1 Task 1 Company Q's current attitude toward social responsibility can best be described as nonexistent. While a business's ultimate goal is to create profit, businesses should enlist community friendly practices to strengthen both the company and the community as a whole. Three areas that Company Q needs to reevaluate are as follows; (1) closing down stores because of the crime rate in that specific part of town; (2) only offering high margin items that are health conscious; and (3) wasting food instead of donating it to local food banks. Company Q has recently closed a couple of stores due to a pattern of lost profits. These two stores were in high-crime-rate areas.
Many of the positions are part-time, therefore, they are positions without benefits. By shopping at Walmart, Americans are supporting China. When Walmart opens new stores, they often cause the closing of other stores, and upset the balance of prices in the neighborhood. "Critics believe that Wal-Mart opens stores to saturate the marketplace and clear out the competition, then closes the stores and leaves them sitting empty." ("Store Wars," n.d., Big store, business practices section, para.
The intended interest group are between the ages of 17 – 21. This means that it decreases the measure of customers that this product attracts. The sort of customers that this vigor snack appeals to might be the sporty sort that likes a high vigor release, with a sound diet. Boost Bites targets male consumers, with minimal time for sit down meals. This product is not greatly estimated, which means teenagers and adolescent adults can get and go, without paying extraordinary amounts of cash.
I disagree completely that we as Americans suffer from lack of information about nutrition in fast food. Every capable adult knows that eating anything in a fast food restaurant is bad for you. They need to stop being lazy and letting their kids eat fast food frequently, especially if their kids are not very active. It is the responsibility of the parents to feed their kids three healthy meals a day and to make sure that they are maintaining a healthy diet. I do not believe that if fast food industries started putting nutrition labels on their food that it would have a significant difference on the amount of food that people eat.
The addictive and yet fattening qualities associated with fast food leave people constantly craving one more bite. However, Schlosser makes a decent point in the epilogue section of his book when he states that under no circumstances is anyone actually forced to purchase and consume fast food products and those who desire change should simply "stop buying it" (Pg. 269). No matter how many excuses the fast food industry or average consumer comes up with, consuming fast food is just not worth the endless list of consequences
There should not be open campus at schools. The school would lose profits from the lunches, the food consumed by the students outside of school will most likely be unhealthy, and the students would not be under any supervision. Open campus would have a negative effect on schools and its students. The students would leave during lunchtime to get themselves McDonalds or Burger King to eat. Meanwhile, our already poor school loses profit to these fast food restaurants.
