What’s Chris doing at McDonald’s
That’s Chris, and yes, that blurry patch was a bird. For those of you who don’t know him that’s not the kind of guy he is. He just thought it would keep me from posting this picture. Instead I’m collecting a series of these.
We have staff meetings once a week. We’ve been using the opportunity to visit our city’s fine fast food establishments. This was Burger King. The one next to it McDonald’s. We’ve hit Panera, Starbucks, Chipotle, Qdoba, Cosi, and this past week: Taco Bell/ KFC.
These little excursions serve a couple of purposes (besides rocking our digestive systems). They teach us things. Each time we meet we start out with a discussion about what we see, what we like, surprises, and a little history of the chain.
Second, they keep us grounded. This is our competition. This is what people eat daily. This is why we’re working so hard.
You’re getting to know us, let’s play a little game: who eats most willingly, who needs to be force-fed when we go out (the pictures above may provide you with some hints):
(A) Chris (MIT manager, soon to move on to Harvard store)
(B) Peter (MIT manager in training, but not for long)
(C) Vincenzo (DWY manager)
(D) Ayr (the one who everybody is angry at about the Food Truck Festival)
(E) Rolando (the one responsible for our food)
