It’s No Fantasy: There Is Such a Thing as a Free Lunch
I wasn’t really complaining when I wrote last month’s Franchise Times column about our fruitless quest to have a medium Pizza Hut box delivered at work so FT's Fantasy Football league could play the chain’s flick football game.
While I was having a little fun at their expense, I never dreamed Pizza Hut would go to the expense of sending over lunch for the office as a way to apologize for not delivering in our area. Nor did I expect the number of pizzas, two different kinds of pasta, bread sticks and three desserts.
The entire staff has been working in overdrive to get ready for our Restaurant Finance & Development Conference in Vegas next week, so to take a communal break to break bread and scarf down pizza was very much appreciated.
So thank you, Pizza Hut! Your customer service is impressive, and you get kudos for having a sense of humor. (And dare, I say, getting a kick out of our football story.)
I hate to mention another delivery snafu, but I am still a little ticked that I had to wait so long for Nordstrom to deliver my size 8 Tory Burch Blossom Ballet shoes in black. It makes me wonder if perhaps there’s a matching wallet or a second pair in red (I really wish I had ordered the red) in my future?
