Hard to Believe but ...

the Quiznos franchisees are
asking how much the parent
company makes on services
and supplies from the
approved vendors. What a
concept - actually trying
to find out where their
profits are going!

This article has a link at the bottom for a
.pdf copy of the letter the Quiznos franchisees sent to the CEO.

OPNAD $$$ for Specialty Coffee? Already?

While visiting a popular political site I came
across a banner ad for McDonald's coffee. Clicked
on it and went to a full website advertising McCafe
and all five Specialty Coffees.

I found no mention on this site of the fact that
these drinks are available in less than 10% of USA
McDonald's stores.

On Thursday Jan Fields sends out a letter complain -
ing about consistency in the burrito giveaway and
yet Owner/Operator money is being spent on advertising
a product line that 90% of your customers can't buy?

Someone needs to pay attention to where Oak Brook
is spending OPNAD's money. Not to mention Oak Brook's
decision to confuse and disappoint a few million
McDonald's customers.
