GOOD NEWS MONDAY!..CAFE OWNER DOES AWAY WITH PRICING SYSTEM
Good Morning Beautiful People!
I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Did you do something for you?.. I sure hope so cause you're worth it. =) Today our good news comes from www.only-positive-news.com.
Cafe owner Sam Lippert has a lot of faith in his customers. In order to help people through tight economic times, he has done away with a pricing system and simply asks people to pay what they want. He got the idea from his girlfriend from Bulgaria, who explained to him that it’s not an uncommon practice in her country.
And what if someone only wants to pay a quarter for a $10 meal?
As Lippert puts it: “Well, they have to look me in the eye and say that that’s what they think is fair. And, you know, that’s a big incentive. When someone’s at the counter and you say, you get to pay what you think is fair, very few people are going to take advantage of that situation.”
Tippert figures that his pricing system is actually an incentive for people to go out, even though their wallets are tight, because they are paying a fair price in exchange for their product. Their purchase seems reasonable.
And how has this been affecting sales?
“Things have picked up. My sales and customer count are up on a given day between 50 to 100 percent. And I’m starting to look at being able to bring some of my part-time people on full time and maybe being able to add a couple of new employees
I hope that you all have a wonderful day! And remember, if you have some good news please share with us.
