Salads are nice, but burgers are what really sell

Written By: Peggy Korody - Oct• 04•11

In today’s SDUT (Oct 4th) I read the above titled article.  Once again I was disappointed.  What is not mentioned in this article is that people are not buying the “healthy” items on the menu, especially at fast food restaurants, because they are the most expensive items.  In our economy, many people need to stretch their food dollar a bit further, so when you can get 5 burgers for $5, or one salad for $5 and you have a family of four to feed on a limited budget………..what would you order?  Maybe it’s time for these restaurants to reduce the price of the “healthy” items and then see what happens.

What do you think?
