Vote of the week: Should theme park pizza be slices or individual pies?
Written by Robert Niles
As I mentioned in my Great America trip report earlier this week, we ordered Papa John's pizza for lunch while we were visiting that Six Flags theme park.Tweet
But we didn't get a slice or two from the same type of Papa John's pizza you'd get if you ordered one at home. Instead, we got a "personal size" individual pie:
Which brings me to this week's vote. Which would you rather have when you order pizza in a theme park? An individual-sized pie, like we got, or a slice from a larger pie, as you'd get in a Sbarro in an airport or mall?
Logistical issues often dictate why theme parks choose one option over the other. As with any fast food, a park wants to avoid having too many one any item (which leaves them with unsold, wasted food), while also not leaving customers waiting for an item that wasn't yet ready when they ordered. The popularity of individual pies in quick-serve locations such as theme parks and sports stadiums suggests to me that the industry sees those as the more efficient solution.
But is it the one you want? Vote here, and please leave a comment:
