Published in FSD Update

Implement mindless portion control: Portion control is huge for us. We looked at the nutrition content of, say, the muffins we were serving and we found that by reducing the size of the muffins by just one ounce, the item dropped 100 calories. Plus, customers didn’t really notice the change in size. So we’ve done a bunch of things like that. We had a 5-ounce bagel and we dropped it to a 4-ounce bagel. We had a 12-inch wrap and we dropped it to a 10-inch one.
