Don't Express Yourself

Dear Cafe Express on McKinney Avenue,

Things you may not want to publicize to your customers in the form of an "award":

    Lowest Crew Turnover — 64.5 % Lowest Food Cost — 28.8 %

Perhaps you might place these placards in the back room as motivational tools instead of on the dining-room wall. Just a thought, but if your turnover rate is more than 50 percent, the crew definitely needs motivation. And it may be just me, but I never thought your Pasta Amore with side salad was way overpriced until I saw your stellar food cost percentage. LYLAS, Merritt Martin
