Wendy's (No Coke)
This afternoon I went to a local Wendy's drive through to pick up lunch.
When I order a combo meal I found out they were out of Coke. To me this was strange and the possible sign of a badly run operation. My mom years ago told me of a Chinese restaurant that ran out of rice. Maybe this is something akin to this.
There was this chicken place (basically a Nandos rip off) near me that actually ran out of chicken. Closed a few months later.
I can't help but think of "Pepsi!" when I see the title of this thread. As if Wendy's had been taken over by a John Belushi character. "No Coke! Pepsi!"
Still, I think this happened because the franchise operator was trying to save money by keeping stock on hand at a minimum.
