Potential doomsday in Columbia, MO
I've got it on good authority that Shakespeares has hired a senior manager and/or consultant that used to work at Applebee's. Some employment practices have changed already, driving many long term employees away. With one new branch now open and I guess successful, I'm betting that more are on the way. The inverse relationship of quality and quantity is bound to play its hand.
Shakespeare's. So sad to see you go.
I know nothing more about this rumor, but I have found the pizzas at the West location to be of uneven quality. One pie we ordered for delivery was sufficiently undercooked that I couldn't eat it (but undercooked pizza is a major culinary block for me). I think that their oven may not be quite hot enough, so the "usual" time is insufficient.
Two locations of Shakespeare's is all that this town can handle/support. Will they open a Jeff City branch?
My lunch appetite is hoping so.
