Bob Evans Restaurants - Bob Evan's is nothing more than an understaffed fast food place with a big dining room.
I "cook" at Bob Evan's and I NEVER eat there because all of the food is frozen heat-and-serve GARBAGE. NOTHING is made from scratch- the biscuits, rolls, chicken gravy, beef gravy, sausage gravy, meatloaf, pies, cookies, brownies, cinnamon blossums - EVERYTHING. The reason everything is becoming worse is because corporate wants to maintain 17% labor cost which is a RIDICULOUS number, any restaurant in the world would love to have 25 or 26% labor. What this translates into is a chain of restaurants filled with overworked, underpaid and pissed off employees all in the name of making a few extra bucks for the shareholders. Bob Evan's strategies with customers and employees are exactly the same; keep them both just happy enough to where they will probably come back and not a single ounce more. And yes, Bob's is nothing more than an understaffed fast food place with a big dining room, our newest CEO and all of the new higher ups in corporate come from the fast food industry and that is what they want to turn Bob's into while trying to maintain the illusion that it is "home cooking".
Bob Evan's new motto:
Where We Treat Stranger like Friends,
Friends like Family,
And our Employees like ****.
