Italian Grandmothers try Olive Garden for the First Time – VERY FUNNY

VERY FUNNY!

Italian Grandmothers try Olive Garden for the First Time –

Very cute critique by “Italian Grandmothers” – Have a good laugh, take a moment and watch this very funny video……

For some general information about about Olive Garden read below…..

Despite Olive Garden’s advertising that it has a cooking institute in Tuscany, news outlets have reported that, in fact, there is no institute or school. Olive Garden does send a number of managers, trainers, and cooks to Tuscany each year, but they stay in a rented hotel and spend only a few hours at a local restaurant in its off-season.

In September 2014, Starboard Value, an activist hedge fund that had acquired a significant portion of Darden’s stock and was challenging Darden’s management, released a 294-slide presentation assembled by its founder Jeff Smith, that focused on ways the company was wasting money and failing to satisfy customers. Chief among them was the shortcomings of Olive Garden, which earned considerable media attention. Starboard claimed they justified replacing Darden’s directors in an upcoming election with a slate sponsored by the hedge fund.

It cited details such as the unlimited bread sticks the chain offered diners, of which too many went to waste since they tended to go stale, Smith claimed, and paying extra for custom-length straws. The chain’s menu was too complex, with some of its 96 items making no sense, such as vegetable lasagna topped with chicken (“if you wanted meat on your lasagna, you would order the meat lasagna” the slide read). The chain also had stopped the common practice of adding salt to the water in which it cooked its pasta in order to secure longer warranties on the pots, which had Smith incredulous. “Pasta is Olive Garden’s core dish and must be cooked properly.” He included photos of poorly executed dishes purchased at Olive Gardens compared with the photos on the chain’s website, along with quotes from online reviews posted by disappointed customers.
