The new Grilled Hot Dogs will be a permanent menu items for Burger King restaurants.  The Grilled Dogs will be available in both the Classic Grilled Dog and the Chili Cheese Grilled Dog. The Classic Grilled Dog is a flame-grilled hot dog made with 100% beef topped, with ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and relish, served on a fluffy baked bun. The Chili Cheese Grilled Dog is the same beef hot dog topped with warm chili, shredded cheddar cheese and served on a fluffy baked bun. Both are sold separately or as a combo meal.

To get workers excited, Burger King even enlisted Snoop Dogg and Charo to star in training videos for making the hot dogs, however those training videos are not made for public viewing, but only for internal use. Something tells us those will leak out sometime in the near future!

Red Lobster Sees A Huge Sales Increase After Being Mentioned In Beyonce’s New Single!

Beyonce-Red-Lobster

(PCM) Seafood chain restaurant Red Lobster claims they have seen an almost 33 percent increase in sales after the release of Beyonce’s new single “Formation” where in a lyric she mentions taking her man to Red Lobster after sex! Talk about the power of pop culture! Reps from Red Lobster are deeming the sales increase the “Beyonce Bounce” and definitely credit her for the huge surge in sales.

Red Lobster has seen a steady decline in sales over the last few years and was sold by Darden Restaurant Group back in 2014.  It is now privately owned by investment firm Golden Gate Capital. After Beyonce dropped the “Formation” video, Red Lobster also became trending topic on Twitter for the first time ever. Red Lobster is incredibly grateful to Queen Bey and they jokingly tweeted “Cheddar Bey Biscuits” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”.

It is unclear whether or not Red Lobster has attempted to make any contact with Beyonce or her camp, but things are definitely moving forward at a fairly fast pace. Red Lobster boasts 700 locations in the United States and Canada.

Apple Will Now Accept Broken Or Damaged iPhones

iPhone-broken

(PCM) It was a long-standing complaint from customers that Apple would not accept any broken or otherwise damaged iPhones from those looking to trade-in and upgrade their phones. However, the company has now revealed that they will begin accepting these phone in hopes that it will urge people to upgrade to newer models of the iPhone.

Previously, Apple would only offer trade-in credit to customers who brought in an iPhone with working buttons and an intact screen, however now due to a recent decline in sales the company has decided to revamp it’s previous policy and allow more users the ability to trade-in and upgrade their phones regardless of the condition. The iPhone accounts for about two-thirds of Apple’s yearly revenue.

The highly anticipated release of the iPhone 7 is on the way shortly and rumor has it that the new smartphone will feature dual cameras and wireless earbuds. Currently, Apple pays about $350 in trade credit for iPhone’s that are in pristine condition. For damaged phones, they will pay $50 for a 5S, $150 for a 6 and $200 for a 6 Plus.  That will definitely urge those customers who were on the fence about upgrading their damaged iPhone’s to look into getting their hands on the latest model.

Subway Announces The End Of Their $5 Footlong Promotion

Subway

(PCM) After 10 years of plugging and becoming quite well-known for $5 footlong sandwiches, Subway has revealed that they are bringing the promotion to an end. The fast food chain has been offering the $5 footlong promotion since 2007, but due to a recent decline in sales they will now be offering footlong sandwiches for $6 instead.

While the raise in price by a dollar may not seem like that much to some, for many each and every dollar counts and it could mean the difference of choosing an alternative restaurant to grab lunch.  While Subway, themselves, have not yet commented on the footlong price hike, only making the initial announcement, many speculate that the company has continued to see a decline in sales due to the recent underage sex scandal by former company spokesman Jared Fogle.

Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in prison and despite the fact that he was only the Subway spokesman from 2000 to 2008, consumers still strongly associate him with the brand. Subway has made great attempt to distance themselves from the Fogle PR scandal, however it seems that there is still a connection. The company has recently begun a brand new ad campaign which they have titled “Founders”.

Mozzarella-Sticks

(PCM) Fans of fast-food chain McDonald’s were incredibly excited when the news was announced that the company would now be adding mozzarella sticks to their menu nationwide. Customers who had been waiting patiently to try the new cheese sticks were left incredibly disappointed when after ordering their mozzarella sticks one very important component was missing … the actual cheese!

Being that we live in the day and age of social media, customers immediately began posting images of their cheese-less mozzarella sticks on both Twitter and Facebook, tagging McDonald’s and expressing their displeasure.

The company was quick to issue and apology to customers and claim that the cheese may have melted out during the baking process in their kitchens and that those mozzarella sticks should never have been served.

The company goes on to say that they are working on a solution to the problem and have been sending out coupons for a free replacement order of mozzarella sticks to any customers who were affected. Hopefully, the new mozzarella sticks will actually contain cheese!
