I always thought it was cruel to make their employees wear those hideous uniforms.

This. Though it's been a long time since I went anywhere near a mall food court.

Well, if they'd stop singing about needing napkins, they'd probably still be ok.

Honestly, this was a straight up failure to adapt. They could've gone so many ways with the "non-messy food on a stick" concept, but they failed to update at all. They didn't have the reputation for quality and low price that keeps In n Out going.

Drive-thrus. They should have had drive-thrus so I could get a quality corndog on my lunch break, not like the nasty gritty dogs from weinerschnitzel.

I feel sorry for those who have to work there. The place still is trapped in a time bubble from 1966. And who wants to bet that they don't rinse those lemons that they slice up and toss into that vat? MMMMMMMM........pesticides!

Watching the HDOAS girls mash the lemons for the lemonade is absolutely the greatest show in the mall.

I can get a package of 16 Bar-S corn dogs for $4.49, that about 28¢ each. There is no way I would pay what ever their prices are.

There are just some foods that work as mall foods that aren't functional standalone restaurants.  The mall nearest me (not that close) has a Taiwan/Japan-style crepe stand which is really good.  A traditional mall food (in Asia). Wouldn't work standalone. Sadly, it's the absolutely only reason I have to go into that mall, so I don't very often.

I guess he could go into fair concessions/food trucks.  That'd be the nearest analog.

The rents that malls locked in a few years ago are killing a lot of retailers and most malls don't seem to care that they are driving people out of business.  Somehow changing the lease agreement and having some dollars coming in is not as good as having an empty store and no dollars, and this is especially insane given a mall with empty stores makes shoppers go elsewhere as shuttered stores are a real turn off.

Never heard of them. What states were they operating in?

Noticed this as well.

If HDOS is really paying about 30% on rent then, holeee fark, yes, absolutely they needed to file for bankruptcy. That's outrageous.
