Changes again…

by hot sauce and panko

We have always been about transparency. From the very beginning our doors were open and widows uncovered when we made our renovations to the “shop” as we like to call it. Everyone knew our goings-on. Our kitchen is open so you can see what is happening. Our blog incorporates our menu and sauces along with what we are thinking about or have or will do. It’s not easy but it’s our DNA. So in keeping with this tradition this is what is happening.

We have a new menu with these changes (you can view it on our menu page).

1. We have reduced our “cornerstone” sauces to the best of our ability. Editing is such a pain but we have physically hurt ourselves by doing too much. There may be further reductions but you will have to let know what you would like us to keep. Please note that we create and make almost all the sauces…some may not have the same taste profile you may be accustomed to because our philosophy has always been to use as a starting point the original recipe but add to it to develop a different flavor direction, i.e. our buffalo sauce which we think is better and has a deeper flavor and we don’t use Frank’s.

2. Prices have increased! We have tried to hold the line but getting, now count them, eight price increases, we can’t find anymore ways to cut cost internally.

3. We have eliminated the combos and triple orders. We will however be implementing a loyalty program to ease the shock but more about that later.

4. The double is still there except it’s with one sauce only. It’s price is 10.89.

5. We will be introducing new items to keep things fresh and interesting. We have the culinary ability and intend to use it.

6. The 1/2 pan is still available for 24 pieces (a reduction by one piece) at 22.89 and still comes with three sauces/styles. The rules of ordering ahead along with others, still applies.

Hopefully you will take this under consideration and for those who don’t read our blog and be surprised when you come in, we apologize.  We hope this will do the trick at this stage and we are keeping our fingers cross. The whole thing is to keep the quality over quantity.

As Steve Jobs said –

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.”

Be happy…it’s worth it.
