(Pro)portions Sell

I drive by this sign every day.

and two of the three are even true!

Assuming the ‘large portions’ refer to the first and not the last item, here’s a clear example of a restaurant (likely a franchisee) pushing overeating or waste.

The message I’m getting is: ‘Eat an unhealthy amount or throw away a whole bunch. It’s your choice. Either way, check out the waitresses.’

The real loser here: Owls. Guilt by association.

    I run three ethnic restaurants using lot of organic and fresh ingredients. The tragedy is that we have to throw a lot of leftover food and we reduce the serving size then everyone goes on the net (places like Yelp)and bad mouth how small the portions are!! I feel like puting your quote on my menus “Eat an unhealthy amount or throw away a whole bunch. It’s your choice.” Then I will be critisized on the net for scare-mongering the people of land with plenty!! Seems like a lost war to me. Thanks for the picture and wise comments.
