  • Lucky you, Carey. I just ordered 20# of the 4/lb. frankfurters from Peggy at Pearl today and she said that they WILL NOT ship any more dogs 2nd day air after this order. :( I guess I need to find a friend up your way who will buy them and ship them to me. :whistle:

    is Fred retiring? I didn't think he looked that old. Doesn't his brother or brother-in-law have a similar biz somewhere? I also know Fred's sister has an egg as I have sold gaskets to all three of them!

    Wonder why they won't ship? In any case, while they are the best dogs I've ever had, if I couldn't get them locally, I wouldn't pay for 2 day anyway.

    Have you tried BJ's? Some on the east coast carry them. Worth a shot.

    Oh, and is Fred's now going to be called "Bruce's Franks"? Or Harry's? :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • They WILL ship, but only Next Day Air. The cost of next day air makes them price prohibitive. The closest BJ's is an hour and a half away from me in Akron and I don't know if that store carries them yet.

    "a confidential source" gave me the word. I've only made it to Fred's once all year and that was a couple of weeks ago when I met The Stike for lunch. Fred was there but he was off walking his ugly dog.

    For some reason I thought he didn't look as chipper as he usually does.

    not sure what's going on but, he's sold the business for sure. Where are you located anyway?
  • RRPRRP Posts: 22,043
    Mark, the more pounds you order the less the incremental cost. The initial 10 pounds will gag your wallet, but make it 20# or more and the increase is really surprisingly rather small.

  • Just did the exercise online with Pearl. 20#s of dogs, shipped overnight air comes to $177.65 or about $8.98 delivered cost per pound. The hot dogs cost $4.99 per pound and the shipping cost is $3.89 per pound. I love a good dog, but not at almost 9 bucks a pound. :(

    I'm not sure if that will get you business or not...I'm sure it would bring in a few curious folk from the Forum, but in terms of new business you may need to rethink that plan....

    Plus are you relocating to the S. Shore...that's a long commute for .25 an hour... :laugh:

    $9pp for Dogs? No hotdog is worth that. Ribeye's are a couple bucks cheaper.
