Pizza Express is in a financial mess

 

HOW?

 

Margherita 'classic' pizza (that's 11inches) = £10.90 

Some are £16.00 - that is ludicrous !!

 

My friend worked in a pizza take away - she told me the mark up (profit) on all pizzas is massive

Basically they sell for much more than they cost to make.

So how can Pizza Express be in financial trouble?

The BBC business correspondent did a very good job of explaining some of the reasons why they have found themselves in a bit of a pickle. It would appear two of the reasons are rapid expansion and being a middle ground eatery. Something to do with the fact that people, if they are going to cut back tend not to go to the the middle tier restaurants, but chose the lower end, while the very upper end seems to be able to attract customers in enough number to stay afloat.

 

Pizza Express are trying to get people through the door with lunch and early evening deals - we shall see how that works for them. To be honest, I have always enjoyed a night out there with friends. Not something you can do at Pizza Hut

 . . . and what does that mean!!!

 

Not that I've had a night out at Pizza Hut  -  often

Sainsbury banning sales of fire works

 

Lovely - go on - spoil our heritage/tradition/fun

 

 . . . .and now Northumbria Police asking ALL retailers to stop sales to the public!!

 

Sanitized, killjoy culture

There are other retailers that sell fireworks 

 

But there is a reason why they are taking this stance.

 

To be honest, I love a good firework display, but what I don't like is the local idiots letting them off for weeks before and after, late at night when I have to get up next morning.

 

I also wonder how people with dogs etc fair.

I agree, EC 

Bangers should be banned - that should stop the louts.

 

Age should be increased to 21 to help stop youngsters getting them

 

Non organised event fireworks can be made quieter to combat noise pollution

 

A bon fire in a back garden is a great British tradition - would be a shame if it all ended.
