Qdoba has lost a good amount of business on Wednesdays because they used to host an event which provided students with a half off discount on burritos. This caused Qdoba to gain popularity which made Qdoba more money. It is hard to imagine why in the world the company stopped student night if it was providing them customers and popularity.
At Boys’ Latin last year, the senior class had its fundraiser at Qdoba, but this year Chipotle is going to be hosting the fundraiser which is interesting. Chipotle is taking business away from Qdoba due to their well known guacamole and fresh sides.
Qdoba’s bad decision to cancel student discount Wednesday affected many people because that was the only reason some students went to Qdoba. There are people that just went to Qdoba just for the student discount. All of the other mexican grill competitors do not offer a student discount so that was one of the only things that Qdoba had going for them.
The senior class is very frustrated with Qdoba’s decision because it was a tradition on Wednesdays. Senior Dylan Gaines said, “this was Qdoba’s worst decision and Qdoba is just loosing more business due to this cancellation.”
Senior Myles Cohen was also interviewed, and he said, “Qdoba has great queso and it was a great spot to have team dinners and get a discount on monster burritos.”
Junior Corey Sekulow said, “I am frustrated that the Wednesday night half off deal got taken away because at our school it was bonding for our athletic team dinners and it was a good way to get good food and have a discount also.”
Senior Julian Baker talked to a Qdoba worker and got the inside scoop on the situation. Julian said, “When I talked to the manager, he said that on Wednesdays they take in upwards of $10,000 a day and on every other day it is only $3,000.” This shows how it was not a good idea for Qdoba to stop its student discount night.
