It seems that every time I order food at work prices have gone up. Dairy products are higher than ever with no change in sight. Things like flour and dry goods cost more because of shipping. With higher gasoline prices I now get an "energy surcharge" added on for deliveries. Proteins are expensive with beef prices softening just a little but still higher than a few years ago. And so on. So what to do. We raised prices earlier this year. We are portion conscious, waste is minimal. Now what? I guess there are a few ways to go: Raise prices again. Cut portion sizes. Use cheaper or substitute ingredients. So my question is this- if you were in my position, what would you do? I know I get freaked out at the idea of ANY substitutions- but I have to do something and can't believe that I would even think of stooping to that....but here I am... What do you think as a customer? Would you be more upset if you favorite cookie was smaller or if I started using margarine instead of butter or if you came in one day only to find your favorite cookie was now $1.00 more?
