Okay, we’ve seen Man v.s. Food. Big Food= Big Bucks for any restaurant chain right? WRONG! While Americans are notorious for are massive mealtimes, restaurants specializing in these unreal meals seem to all have a few things in common.
- Accessability: Even if it’s not in the heart of a crowded city, most restaurants specializing in big food seem to be right off of major highways where travelers can take the restaurants reputation with them to their destination.
- Menu: Very few enormous eateries focus solely on the “enormous” aspect. Different clients have different appetites, making it risky to have an all jumbo menu (the same goes for restaurants with a bite-size courses).
- Quality: Like all restaurants, quality is key. And bearing the risk of colossus courses means that each dish must be spot on.
- Reputation: THIS IS CRUCIAL!!! I mean some of what I’ve listed applies to all restaurants but specifically with these novelty dives, building a reputation within the area is what will bring in the bucks.
So knowing that these conditions must be perfectly in place for one to launch a successful restaurant that does food to the extreme, I have formed the opinion that, while there will always be restaurants like these, chains like McDonald’s or Wendy’s will never have to worry about competition.
