Jargon of the week: personalised sauce option
[16 Dec 2013] The high-street bakery chain Greggs has banned its staff from adding brown sauce or tomato ketchup to cheese rolls – from now on these condiments may be used only on breakfast rolls with bacon or sausage.
The cost-cutting move was served up by a company spokesman with a delicious dollop of business jargon: ‘Research tells us our sandwich customers value speed of service as very important to them at lunchtime. This means we are unable to offer a personalised sauce option for our full sandwich range.’
