Quote #172, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #172....

"For Wendy's, square isn't so much a shape, as a promise not to cut corners"
-seen on the side of a Wendy's Fountain Cup-

The Wendy's hamburger. Ever notice that it's the only hamburger out there that's square? Mc Donald's, Burger King, Carl's Jr, Sonic, even White Castle are all circular in shape.

Don't know what your thoughts are, but I always found Wendy's a step up above the others in the fast food world. The burgers are a bit less greasy, the fries a smidgeon longer,the lettuce a little crispier. Wait a minute; Mickey D's and BK don't even have lettuce on their standard burger. Then there was the invention of the Frosty; what a great treat after the standard burger, fries and a coke.

A subtle statement. Perhaps even subliminal, the restaurant chain has said something about its QUALITY. I happen to agree. While it's still just a fast food joint, Wendy's in my eyes, rises a notch above the others in quality and taste.

That's my view...... What Say You?

I agree, that is one of my favorite fast food places to go. The other places you might as well call them grease pits.

Never ate Wendy's burgers because I felt they should be round. Their philosophy that square "is not cutting corners" is great. Why don't the use that in TV ads? I will now try them. My friends love them.

I never knew I had the "power" to change a consumer.
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised when you try the "square burger" :):)
