Management at your location doesn't wanna go through the small hastle of setting up the donations. Laziness at its finest.
A lot of franchises don't really allow for donations for various reasons such as them not wanting to be held liable if someone were to get sick from eating the food as well as the extra costs of having to give it to a shelter for the homeless. I'm not sure about this specific case and whether or not the franchise is allowed to donate, if they are however it's definitely laziness at its finest
Nope. They were day old donuts. We throw out a ton every day.
We throw out bagels every 10 hours, breads every 2 days after defrosting, and donuts every 20 hours. All of it goes straight to the dumpster. It's such bull****. There's no excuse as to why the food can't be donated.
Unfortunately, it happens with a lot of fast food places as well. A place I use to work at for example threw out all of the bread daily. It was pretty common for the bin to just be full of bread the next day. I really don't understand why there's so many rules in place preventing all that food which is still edible to be donated or given to people who can't afford food - it would be cool if there was some sort of system or incentive to donate the leftovers to benefit those in need of food.
Location is plural. Hundreds upon hundreds of pastries are thrown out daily. I think the franchise owns 12 stores. So ****ing glad I quit. I love my new job.
I'd probably get fired by the owner if he found out I was posting this stuff. The district manager was too chicken**** to go through with his word and fire me for taking a vacation though.
Good to hear the new job is good!
You wouldn't be the first person to see how bad a workplace is and complain about it, I doubt you'll be the last
