Isn't that like our government investigating itself. I think we know the end results of that investigation.
Well if the stores at issue are all owned/run by the same franchisee I don't really think TGI Fridays is to blame (automatically). Even if they were
run by different folks I don't think you should be blaming corporate. To me that's like blaming QFC (Kroger) for one store having an awful manager
that changes the dates on the milk (albeit more serious).
At this point it's too early to tell if it's even the franchisee pulling this nonsense. I have no idea how these things are structured, if the guy
has a restaurant manager for the restaurant managers. I have some suspicions though.
I would think they would most certainly be performing their own investigation, and doling out punishments for those not following the rules. It hurts
their brand for franchisees to be pulling this kind of BS. Now that being said, I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that filling the more
expensive booze with cheaper stuff isn't tolerated/secretly encouraged to increase profit margins. I just highly doubt that any corporate folks
would turn a blind eye to actively poisoning the hootch or using water "not from a tap" *shudder*.
I am incredibly irritated that the restaurants involved aren't being publicly outed. In my mind they should be closed until things are worked out,
and there is a complete guarantee the establishments are safe. And the possible punishment? Losing your liqour license? WTF. Let's get some teeth
involved and set a freaking example. I believe these people should be facing some serious jail time not a possible revocation of their funny juice
I've never been to a TGI Fridays. Is it as bad as Olive Garden? Hate Olive Garden so much. I actually think it would be a deal breaker for me in a
relationship, I don't care how many breadsticks she can stuff in her purse. It's just awful.
