Buger king Complaint - Beware Burger King Has No Tomatoes In Western Iowa

Review by amham98 on 2010-03-01
IOWA -- Went through drive through on February 26 2010 at around 10:30pm in Missouri Valley Iowa no sign posted at the speaker at drive through stating no tomato's no sign was at the window where it was visible. Had ordered 6 whopper jr's with other sandwich's, and got home and tomatoes on only one Whopper jr. you call the store and they said that they had signs posted but you never seen them.

They state that they have problems with there tomato's being frozen. so I call other stores in Iowa and Nebraska and guess what they have frozen tomato's to so they have non. come to find out it is the people that they get tomato's from that are not able to supply them with enough tomato's.
this happened last year to.

If I had a company that could not give me enough food of what I needed
for the seconded time, I think I would be looking for another company to by my produce from before I lost more of my business and from this web site it just might be a 3 year.

Burger King I am through with you and will go to McDonald's and other fast food.
I have called around and they seem to not have any problem getting tomato's from the same supply that you have at Burger King. even where I work they have not had a problem and they have the same delivery company.

personally I think you are making too much over a vegetable. sometimes businesses run out of items. sometimes weather conditions happens. if not having a tomato on your burger makes you upset maybe you have bigger issues.

Well, first of all, if eating this stuff wasn't such a religion to you,

"Burger King I am through with you and will go to McDonald's and other fast food.
I have called around and they seem to not have any problem getting tomato's from the same supply that you have at Burger King."

then you might be in a better mood. Eating whole, real, non-processed foods can really improve how you feel overall.

And, if you have enough time to call various fast food restaurants, then you probably have enough time to plant your own garden and have your own tomatoes.

I'm really not being facetious here, I would encourage you to eat healthier so that you feel better, then you can have more positivity and patience regarding small issues such as missing tomatoes.

Different stores likely have different produce distributors. I bet it's not that they can't get tomatoes, but that they would be too expensive from their distributor right now.

Maybe BK shipped all of its extra tomatoes to Chile to the earthquake survivors.

What was it, a couple of years ago when there was a massive recall of tomatoes and stores took them off the shelves? People complained like crazy. Excuse me, didn't they ever read the news? Even if I ate tomatoes, which I don't, I wouldn't have bought one during that time.

I don't know where the BK's in your area get their tomatoes from but they just might not be able to get them period from their supplier. The hard unexpected freeze this year has hit many produce growing areas.
