Someone working at a fast-food restaurant is bound to face torment either by their peers, and have the social stain of being viewed as poor or dirty. In a personal interview with another fast food worker, Whitney said, “…a lot of them [fast food workers] do tend to have that lower class background. Also, whenever you find adults working in the fast food industry, it generally means they lack an education.” A lot of younger adolescents will take jobs at fast food restaurants because very few places will hire kids when they first get their legal working papers, but fast food restaurants tend to flood their restaurant with these juvenile employees.
It is often said that the less teengers in the reastaurant, the better the sales of the business; however, teens are also customers, they bring their friends with them and without teens in the restaurant, overtime Mr. Jones will shut down his business. Mr. Jones is making wrong assumptions about the teenagers in his restaurant. According to the student blog, “ All the noises came from annoying business people. This shows that teenagers are not the only ones being loud. The Muchy’s promise of a “quiet lunch” is not possible because the restaurant is still going to be loud. Teenagers are the ones who attract the
Employment impacts would be very noticeable I believe. It would allow employees to get more hours which would allow them to make more money. This in turn would help the restaurant turn over more money as
For this paper I choose a well know fast food restaurant, which is “Chick-fil-A”. Chick-fil-A is a restaurant that they focus on all ages, and any kind of people. On March 25, I personally went to the “Chick- Fil- A” that located beside the Pasadena City College and observe. Chick- Fil- A is a company that tries to focus on every age as possible as they can, even though the price that they had marked is high than the McDonald, Jack in the box, etc... but they are giving costumer the better quality of foods. However when I site down and observe I found out there are few families with kids, old people, students, and businessman, etc…. Moreover, Chick- Fil- A had chosen a great location to locate their restaurant, beside the restaurant, which
First, since Munchy’s is the only diner that people would go to for reasonable food and not fast food, they would get a lot of customers. Because they get customers frequently, Munchy’s would receive a variety of different consumers. Teenagers and adults were the most popular customers and Munchy’s mentions that the teenagers were driving away the adults for being obnoxiously loud and annoying. Because Joe was losing so much money invested into Munchy's, he decided to ban teens from the diner for certain hours of the day. This allows adults, which are his highest paying customers, to eat in peace without being disturbed. Many would say it's discrimination against teens. Well, since it is Joe’s business, and if he sees he is losing money, he will do what he can to keep it running. Wouldn’t you?
Banishment in restaurants hostile to minors ensures that every dollar counts. Since store and restaurants need cash in order for the business to be relentless, there should not be any type of punishment ascribe to resulting in loss of revenue. However, when adolescents are not eliminated earnings will increase. In the graph, “Munchy’s patrons in October,” the source indicates that during the month
From the owner’s point of view, I could be empathetic toward his reasoning for not wanting his customers driven off by harassment and badgering (p.53). His opinion of the situation was in stark contrast to mine. He believed that any transient who wandered by would be detrimental to his business and that they needed to
Most of these restaurants stay open until after midnight, but the on campus version only stays open until the late afternoon. For example, at The University of Alabama the on campus subway hours are from 7:30 am to 7:00 p.m., when the subway franchise normal hours are usually 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m., with some even being open 24- hours. at This is inconvenient for students with classes in the later afternoon and night time. From personal experience it is such a disappointment when your favorite restaurant is closed before you can get to it. This often leads students to travel off campus to the same franchise at a different location. The money spent at the other locations could be spent at the on-campus restaurants and help bring in more income for the University. Extending the hours of these places would also be beneficial to the university because it would attract more customers, and more customers brings in more money for the university as well as the food chain. Those who disagree may argue that on campus restaurant hours should not be extended because it would ultimately cost more money. However, since more income would be brought in from customers, it would accommodate for any extra money that would have to be spent. Allowing students and even factuality the opportunity to stop by these restaurants while on campus instead of having to travel to
With the demand of fast food on the rise, two rival competitors continue the argument of “Who is better, Zaxby’s or Chick-Fil-A?” Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley founded Zaxby’s in 1990, almost forty-five years after Dan T. Cathy established his first Chick-Fil-A dwarf house in 1946. Since these entrepreneurs started their businesses, their restaurants have popped up all across the country. Both share many similarities while still keeping their individuality, and each company brings in a tremendous amount of revenue each year. Typically, Zaxby’s is open twelve hours a day, seven days a week; Chick-Fil-A’s normal work day is sixteen hours, but they are closed on Sundays. Each restaurant provides both drive through

Zachary McLeroy founded Zaxby’s in 1990, almost fourty-five years after Dan T. Cathy established his first Chick-Fil-A dwarf house in 1946.

The restaurant industry is said to be one of the oldest industries in the economy. As the economy and urbanization grow, so too does the industry of restaurants; it’s for this reason that the industry has been growing at a rapid pace. Even with the restaurant industry ebbing and flowing, there are still new entities entering the fray consistently. Some restaurants may close, but it will not be too long before a new restaurant opens in the place of the old one. Historically, the restaurant industry has contributed nearly 4 percent to the gross domestic product (GDP) of the United States (U.S.) economy. The most recent findings show that the restaurant industry employs more than 12.7 million people (which is approximately equal to 9 percent of the
One of the key operational ingredients to make them successful is their hours of operations. The restaurant is only open from 11a to 2pm and from 5pm to 10pm. This could by far be one of the best strategies for them as it allows them to focus on the lunch and dinner seekers in the neighborhood. These hours of operations make it very easy to find part time employees helping keep payroll and benefits at 15% compared to 26.9% for the average limited menu restaurant. Being a buffet style restaurant and priding themselves on the freshness of their food, the owners have managed to run operations that allow them to reduce waste to mainly what the customers don’t finish eating. This also allows them to keep their
At 4:30 p.m. on December 6, 2010, Meredith Collins, VP of Marketing for Reed Supermarkets, walked down the sidewalk of the 10-store strip mall that housed Reed’s Westgate Plaza branch in Columbus, Ohio. Collins didn’t shop; instead she took mental notes about store traffic, first at the Reed store and then at an indirect but increasingly worrisome kind of competitor—a dollar store. The Reed was predictably well lit and inviting, and Collins could see three registers open and two or three customers in line at each. “Not too bad” she thought, “but not what I would hope for at this time of day, this close to the holidays.” She’d felt the same way at two other Reeds
