Marketing Genius

So the McCormick and Shmicks, were trying  to come up with a marketing scheme to get guests back in the seats. They noticed about a fifty to sixty percent income loss once business was starting to boom around them. I’m talking about the fish house in Beaverton. That’s where the idea originated in 1982.  Before the burger wars started you could go to McDonald’s and get a Big Mac,fries and a drink for four or five dollars. So at the Beaverton location the thought instead on being associated with buy one get one free drinks during happy hour. That they would put a quality half-pound burger and fries on the menu for $1.95. In six months of doing so the had fully recovered that lost revenue.   After a year of logging numbers they realized that not only were they putting folks back in the seats. They also were running a 65% food cost during happy hour and still making a killing.  Because  on average they would sale two to three drinks on average per person.  So other McCormick and Shmicks say they saw the astonishing growth in numbers. Then others decided to come on board with it.  In most establishments that did this say that it still is the number one selling happy hour item on the menu. Genius I tell you simply genius!
