Open Forum Friday, February 17th 2012
So how did the inaugural Open Forum Friday go? 56 comments… not too bad. I was thinking perhaps throwing out topics or questions might get some extra participation for installment #2. Here we go:
- What do you think will be the next trend in the quick serve industry? I’m thinking the narrowing of the gap between fast food vs fast casual unfortunately.
- Are you all about value menu items or big combo meals? My vote goes to value menus and I wish places like Chick-fil-A would implement one. My average CFA purchase is around $12 and I’m a little ashamed.
- What fictitious food establishment do you wish really existed? Hmm, Stan Mikita’s Donuts from Wayne’s World (but that’s just a spoof of Tim Horton’s right?). Or maybe Krusty Burger from The Simpsons… I know I’m missing a bunch.
- I’ll be in South Florida next week… any grub recommendations for me? I’ve got a list of 15 already, but I’m always open to new suggestions.
These are just some random topics that can get the ball rolling. Feel free to talk about whatever (grub related of course). Let’s get some good discussions going to start the weekend. Once again, play nice please. Thanks!
Oh one last thing… I know GrubGrade is painfully slow to load. Our platform is extremely outdated and there are upgrades in the works to improve things. No plans to aesthetically overhaul the site (if you’re worried about that), just plans to improve the reader experience and a few extras here and there… so thanks for putting up with us while we work behind the scenes.
