People that expect massive food-chains(Olive Garden) to be the highest quality, best tasting, and most affordable restaurants...and they let you know about their disapproval EVERY chance they get. I think some of them hate it, just because so many people eat there, so it isn't cool anymore.....omg they are FOOD HIPSTERS!
Quickest and smarter way to raise your prices is to make the product portion smaller instead of raising the price.
Also this method will not alert the CPI gov't BS accounting method.
Um, yes, it will alert them.
According to the BLS, "...the recorded information is sent to the national office of BLS, where commodity specialists who have detailed knowledge about the particular goods or services priced review the data. These specialists check the data for accuracy and consistency and make any necessary corrections or adjustments, which can [include] an adjustment for a change in the size or quantity of a packaged item."
When it comes to chains, I've found that it really depends on the managers. I've gone to a couple of OG's and the difference was night and day. I'll go to one in a heartbeat if I feel like it, but you'd have to pay me to go to the other. It's the same with most other chains - just go in, check the cleanliness, the bathrooms, watch the manager (is she/he even around and checking on customers), and how well the staff attend to customers. That will tell you a *lot* about what's going in behind the scenes....
