Millenials aren’t killing chain restaurants. Meal-delivery services are.

Yeah, we hear all the time all the things millennials are killing. Napkins, beer, breastaurants, cereal, golf, etc. But they’re not really killing them. Those industries are killing themselves. Sure, they have some help with people’s changing tastes in leisure-time activities, changing tastes, people working two jobs to make ends meet, and more. And yes, chain restaurants are going the way of the dinosaur for many reasons, but it’s not the millennial. It’s changing tastes, people wanting better nutrition when they dine out and it’s meal-delivery services. It’s Grubhub. It’s DoorDash. It’s Uber Eats. Yeah, I’ll go there.

I’m not saying they’re bad. For some small mom-and-pop places, meal-delivery services are a godsend. Mom & Pop don’t have to pay drivers and hourly rate when business is slow, aren’t required to get the additional insurance policies for deliveries and don’t have to worry about their employees getting robbed (It’s Youngstown. It happens) or injured in an accident on Drive-Like-Shit Tuesday. I’ve had several bar/tavern/restaurant owners I know tell me these exact things. And I get it … I used to work from home, I would have loved to have something other than pizza available for delivery. But I don’t want chain restaurant food delivered to my door. Period.

But hey, that’s me. Maybe you really need to have a Denny’s breakfast delivered? Or that crap that Applebee’s claims is food brought straight to your door? Why? Applebee’s and Denny’s are places you settle for at when the place you want to go is packed. Not your first choice. Not at least for me, any day. Like Sunday.

On Sunday, Wifey and I planned to go to breakfast and Bob Evans on Belmont was packed. So we settled for Denny’s. Place was half-empty. The hostess sat us right away and got us coffee. About 15 minutes later our ‘server’ came over and said, “I just found out you’re in my section. Are you ready to order?” We ordered. In the 45 minutes that followed, they sat four other tables in her section, she took their orders and never once looked our way. Had she looked, she’d have seen that our coffee cups were at the edge of the table, the standard “refills needed” position. Eventually, I walked up to the customer counter and asked the server behind it for refills. “Our server has forgotten we exist.”

One of the tables that was seated after we arrived got their food before we did. Wifey wanted to leave. We watched at least three cars pull in and, come in and leave after hearing it’s taking a long time to get food. And GrubHub was in and out of there three or four times while we’re waiting.

Finally, as we were getting ready to leave, our food comes out.  My oatmeal is crusty on top and cold. Eggs? Room temperature at best. Wifey’s toast buttery-like spread had already re-congealed from liquid to solid. As our ‘server’ was taking an order from another table (poor bastards) I walked over to her, looked at her and said, “We waited over an hour. We got our own coffee refills. And now our food is COLD? This place is half empty. We’re leaving.” (Side Note: This also happened to us one other time at this Denny’s, too. We left before our food came that time, so this isn’t new.)

We walk up to the cashier, Wifey says she’ll pay. I’m like “We’re not paying.” Cashier is explaining to a young mom with a cute little one that it’s about 45 minutes for food. Lady says, “This place is half empty.” Cashier says, “We’re having long ticket times because we have a lot of to-go orders.” I chimed in “You don’t want to eat here today,” explaining our situation. Cashier apologized and told us she’d void the check. Mom and baby left. So did the couple behind her.

So Denny’s lost the $25 we would have paid, plus the ‘server’ still would have gotten 10% for awful service. Plus the two two-tops that were at the cashier station when we left also left. And the three cars we saw pull in, two or three people get out of and get back into after hearing it’s 45 minutes for Denny’s, and that’s not because the place is full, but because that kitchen was bumping, apparently, with GrubHub orders. Which is good for the food prices, but not for a full-service restaurant. And it’s sure not good to your staff. I’m sure the GrubHub buyers are tipping their GrubHub drivers, but as we talked above, those drivers aren’t your employees. And GrubHub buyers are not tipping your employees. Again, not sustainable.

Take care of the people who are in your store, tipping your staff, posting selfies, promoting your business. Because they’ll be back. Unfortunately, for Denny’s on Belmont, we won’t be back. I’d rather wait at Bob Evans.

What to do now the chocolate’s on sale for half price …

whiskeyHappy Friday! You’ve survived Valentine’s Day or Single’s Awareness Day another year, and now the candy is half-off!

Drink Up, Youngstown!

drinkupyoungstown

 

One night, my now wife (we were dating at the time) and I were sitting at The Draught House having a fine sampling of their beer and someone said the phrase that gets under my skin, “Man, there’s never ANYTHING to do in Youngstown.”

I turned to this fine gentleman and rattled off about 10 things to do from a hockey game, to bands playing in the area, a beer rep was having a release party and who knows what else, but I in just the normal social media pages I’d perused that day, I found all those things to do without even looking hard.

I looked back at my beer, took a sip and said, “Ya know, I should do something with this knowledge I accumulate,” and thought about a lady I was acquainted with in Columbus who has a pretty kick-ass blog called “Drink Up Columbus” (Twitter, Facebook) and asked how she got started. A few tweets later I laid the groundwork for Drink Up Youngstown.

Over the years, we’ve evolved and gotten a pretty good handle on what’s happening with the bars, restaurants, clubs, music venues and events in our five-county area, and are glad so many of you are here with us today! As always, if your favorite spot isn’t on the list, and it’s not a members-only establishment, let us know, and if they’ve got an active social media page, we’ll be glad to give them a follow and share what’s up! Thanks!
