Chick-Fil-a vs. Raising Canes

...Madison Blankenship English 101-004 Mr. Lyles October 19, 2012 Raising Cane’s Vs. Chick-fil-A Raising Cane’s and Chick-Fill-A are very popular fast food restaurants that both specialize in chicken.  While both specialize in the same type of food, they conduct their businesses differently. Their presentations are similar in some areas and different in others. Kristin Mastre greatly explains that Raising Cane’s and Chick-fil-A can be easily compared through their environment, costs, nutrition, and variety in her article,“Throwdown! Chick-fil-A versus Raising Cane’s.” (par. 1). The environments of each restaurant provide an atmosphere that makes the customer want to return. Raising Cane’s has a very fun type of decoration using movie posters, band posters, and sports team decoration. It uses these posters to attract people of all ages to eat there. Raising Cane’s also allows their employees to show team spirit for sports’ teams around the area (Feasting Fort Collins, par. 7). This atmosphere makes the restaurant a perfect place to be after football games. Chick-fil-A has a family oriented environment. It has children play places, and very polite service. Chick-fil-A employees will always ask, “How they may serve you?” and answer the customer’s “Thank you” with “My pleasure.” The customer service creates an atmosphere so the customer feels that he or she is not actually in a fast food restaurant (Feasting Fort Collins, par. 5). Both restaurants provide outstanding...

...SWOT Analysis : Strengths  Firstly I think that our major strength is the fact that ”G” is an innovative concept; Indeed this is the first restaurant in the city that offers a complete takeaway meal made of salted and sweet waffles and at a competitive price, we offer meals at 8 euro for a salted and sweet waffle and a drink. In addition to being innovative, we found a local in a mall, this ensures the visibility of our restaurant and influx is a real advantage for us. Ideally, it would also be the place where the merchants would eat at lunch before getting back to work for example, so it would be our first customers. “G will insists on the fact that it is a French cook, and the waffles are made according to the French tradition and they are directly made in the restaurant in front of the customers so they can see how we wade them and what products we use. It is important for us to install trust between the customer and us. Besides, G is willing to buy local products and organic products which is also a financial advantage since we won’t have any transport fees, the products we are looking for are available in every supermarkets in France and are not expensive at all. Fianally we are also willing to offer a high-quality service so we will recruit our waiters mainly on the basis of their motivation, and of their personality. They will only need a couple hours of training in order to be efficient at work, but the most important for us is that the...

...Waffle A waffle is a leavened batter or dough cooked between two plates, patterned to give a characteristic size, shape and surface impression. Etymology The word “waffle” first appears in the English language in 1725: "Waffles. Take flower, cream..."[2] It is directly derived from the Dutch wafel, which itself derives from the Middle Dutch wafele.[3] While the Middle Dutch wafele is first attested to at the end of the 13th century, it is preceded by the French walfre in 1185; both are considered to share the same Frankish etymological rootwafla.[4] Depending on the context of the use of wafla, it either means honeycomb or cake. History Medieval origins Waffles are preceded, in the early Middle Ages, around the period of the 9th–10th centuries, with the simultaneous emergence of fer à hosties /hostieijzers (communion wafer irons) and moule à oublies (wafer irons).[7][8] While the communion wafer irons typically depicted imagery of Jesus and his crucifixion, the moule à oublies featured more trivial Biblical scenes or simple, emblematic designs.[7] The format of the iron itself was almost always round and considerably larger than those used for communion.[9][10] The oublie was, in its basic form, composed only of grain flour and water – just as was the communion wafer.[11] It took until the 11th century, as a product of The Crusades bringing new culinary ingredients to Western Europe, for flavorings such as orange blossom water to be added to the oublies; however...

Because Waffletruck.

...Because WAFFLETRUCK. In 1831, there was man named Leopold. Leopold loved to sell waffles, so sell waffles he did! It all started in a little horse-drawn carriage, in the “Grand Place” of Brussels. His waffles were magic, enough so that people adored him, and he was crowned King Leopold I of Belgium. Fast forward to 1964, the World’s Fair, and Maurice Vermeersch’s “Bel-Gem” waffle stand. This is where an American love-affair with the Belgium waffle began. The crispy texture, accompanied by the sweet medley of strawberries and whip cream, were revered by New Yorkers. Unfortunately, the flame of waffle-love dimmed while unattended through the 70’s. Cheap diners began serving mushy excuses for waffles. The ways of the Belgium waffle were nearly forgotten. The King of Belgium got word of the sad state of waffle affairs in the United States, and proclaimed, “These waffles are a disgrace to the culinary heritage of our Flemish and Walloon people. We just cannot let this go on.” That brings us to the waffle-guy himself. Thomas DeGeest, previously an undercover IBM Management Consultant, now “Special Envoy for Wafels” to the USA, was given the task of reviving the quality Belgium waffle. A “waffle-surge” annual budget was allotted by the King to Thomas. “With meager funds but with substantial moral support from the Ministry, his wife Rossanna and waffle lovers everywhere, Thomas bought a 1968 Chevy box truck and hit the hot dog and shish kebab jammed jungle of New York City...

The Waffle

...It is no secret that today’s workforce no longer consists entirely of people. Rather, machines are being developed to complete many of the tasks which humans have traditionally done. This can greatly increase productivity and efficiency of simple, repetitive tasks. Many people view this as a great positive and point out that it leads to a more uniform and less expensive product which is better for everyone. However, some people are more wary of this popular trend of automating the workforce and question whether this progress is truely positive. Their concerns, though, are outweighed by the benefits these machines offer. It is the popular view among companies which are moving toward automation that robots can do many tasks better than humans. For example, in the automotive industry, most of a car’s individual components are manufactured by pre-programmed robots which have much greater and more precise output than would be possible for a human. In addition, robots cut down the cost of production by a considerable amount. If a company hires an employee to complete a simple task for $50,000 per year but could instead buy a machine for a one time purchase of $30,000, it is far more cost effective to buy the machine. Lower cost of production means that the goods produced can now be sold at a lower pricepoint which passes the savings on to the consumer. Companies producing goods rightly contend that the use of machines to complete low-skill jobs has only positive impact for...

Empirical Study on Hrm

...Final report- Pinehurst Wiffle Waffle team For our project our aim was to design a dry powder-based dairy product, which is either a new range of product or an extension of an already existing range of Easiyo products. We thought this would be a challenging, but also interesting, product to design. Firstly we researched what dry powdered products were already on the market, so that we could familiarise ourselves with all the different kinds of products out there, and also to see what had already been done and which ones looked most enticing to us. We then had a brainstorming session combining all the ideas we had. Out of all the thoughts we discussed we narrowed it down to the five ideas we liked the most: 1. The protein/sports drink 2. Waffles 3. Scones 4. Pavlova 5. Yoghurt We then discussed and researched the positives and negatives of each of these ideas. To help us to decide which one out of our three choices we wanted to continue our project with, we constructed a survey in which we asked a variety of ages which idea they preferred. From our surveys, we found that the waffle mix was by far the most popular and thus we chose the waffle mix to continue our project with. From our market research, we found that present food trends are showing that the population is inclined towards healthy eating, so we decided in our kitchen sessions to experiment with a healthy option, and also a dessert or treat option, and by doing this we would be...

...Food not only distinguishes and represents a culture, but can also reflect one's personality, lifestyle, and socio-economic status. America is made up of every kind of culture, nationality, and custom. Because America is mainly composed of immigrants and descendants of immigrants, there is no real "American cuisine,  only Americanized cuisine and a multitude of cuisines taken from various cultures. The diversity that makes up America's cuisine is as varied as the diversity that makes up America. Also, as there are many cuisines that make up American cuisine, there are also many roles of food in American pop culture. From classifying gender and social status to providing fuel, satisfaction, and excuses, food affects people in many ways. Since I have come to college, I have learned to appreciate Korean food, which I have grown up eating. Korean food is part of the diverse group of cuisines that make up America's cuisine. Although I enjoy almost every type of food, I am partial to Korean food, the cuisine of my native land. One of my two favorite dishes is mandu soon dubu, which is a spicy tofu soup with dumplings cooked in it. The other favorite is dwenjang jjigae, which is a somewhat salty bean curd stew with tofu and various vegetables cooked in it. I like spicy or salty foods, which may explain why these two foods are my favorite, and also why I like seafood so much. When I go to my home in Torrance, I eat Korean food every day. As a result, when I am at school, I crave...

How to Make Blueberry Waffles

...Louis Scuderi Speech 151/301 18/1/12 Homemade Blueberry Waffles When I was a youngster I used to wait up for my mom to get home every night. She worked the night shift and always came home late, but it was fine with me. In fact it was more than fine; I loved every moment of it.
