It’s not about the money, people want quality food. I don’t eat that garbage anymore. It’s just some type of soy glued with high fructose corn syrup. I think people are starting to get it. If I must eat a quick bite out, I rather eat at Qdoba, Chipotle, or panara bread.

“as it and other fast-food chains fight for customers who are spending cautiously during continued economic uncertainty.”

So what do they do?

Raise the price of the dollar menu items.

Not by 25 cents or 50 cents.

But by 79 cents.

So in the battle to retain those customers you raise your prices on the items they purchase by 79%.

Good move.
