Burger King Listened


In response to the USA today article on why is Burger King selling Hot Dogs now?
The simple answer is, because of me!  The untold story, click on URL below;
http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2016/02/23/burger-king-hot-dog-launch-confusion/80809078/ 

Many of the regular readers of this blog and my close friends know that I frequent the Kapa'a Burger King for  my coffee or diet coke break on a regular basis.  Many times I will engage in conversation with others whom are sitting alone in the lounge area, I call the VIP lounge.

It was approximately one year  ago while drinking a diet coke and talking story with whom I found  was a Burger King VP visiting from the mainland. I proceeded to tell him about some ideas I thought would help BK make more money and satisfy their customers.


My first idea was,  why not grill hot dogs? A lot of people are wondering why the King of the Whopper is selling hot dogs now? (Because I gave them the idea!) 

I am a little upset since they are not fresh grilled. They grill the dogs in the morning and microwave them in the bun once you order. None the less I feel other fast food franchises like Micky D's and Wendy's will follow suit.

The BK franchises  already have the grill and dogs are easier to prepare than Hamburgers. The other item I requested was to bring  back the awesome chili made with the left over burgers from the previous day. They used to do this  at  the Hawai'ian  franchises around 10 years ago and it was the most delicious, filling and affordable dish on the menu.  I think they got rid of it because it was inexpensive and was a meal within itself--people didn't need to order burgers to satisfy their appetite. I think maybe it made them lose money, since it was so onolicious.  (ono means delicious inn Hawaiian)

I feel pretty sure that they took my idea about the dogs and ran with it. The only thing is, I asked the manager how are the dogs, "good" she replied, "I like the chili dog best!"   I figured this was the clue where she would say, "would you like to try one compliments of the King?" 

I am still waiting, you figure the least they could do is comp a free dog, especially after this went nation wide with my idea!

I still can't figure why they didn't make a Whopper 1/4 lb dog like Costco, especially since the name 'Whopper' is patented and copyrighted by BK international. Just imagine  going in and asking for a Whopper of a wienie!! In the meantime go in and order your dog, tell em, "Kimo sent you, and that I'm still waiting for my  comp dog!"

Now imagine if they go with my 'Whopper of a wienie concept, then they'll  hopefully comp me meals for life!

Congratulations, Kimo!! Has to feel good (even without the lifetime free meals that you deserve!!) to know that at least someone was listening to you and took your advice. Amazing that BK did not sell hot dogs until you suggested it.
I wish that just once in the 20 plus years I have been testifying before the council that SOMEONE would acknowledge what I say---say good idea or bad idea but at least have me know that I am not talking to a wall.
Oh well, at least you are good enough to post what I say and the people can hear me that watch 53.
Mahalo,
Glenn
