Mini Ketchup Packets – WHY?

May 19, 2009 at 3:58 pm 1 comment

If you were a restaurant owner or ketchup maker, why would you package ketchup in 0.6 oz packets? Have you ever seen a customer take just one packet? No, they end up taking a handful and squirt them all over their tray so they can dip fries in them. Even if you only wanted 0.6 ounces worth of ketchup for your hamburger and you ask the drive-through attendant for ketchup, you know you’re getting a handful of packets.

Why do I care? It seems to be a big waste. Not only in costs and resources to make mini packets, but also in my time to have to open 6 packets to have enough for my fries.

    Do like Mr. Jerry Seinfeld does…take your own condiments to the restaurant and hope to God that the manager doesn’t catch you!!!
