Burgerville now allows tipping and may go on strike

In recent years, I am under the impression that this chain is trying to appeal more to the upscale crowd. Their prices are on the high end, and their food has become inconsistent from one location to the next.

The union angle is relatively new, and interesting that they are already talking about a strike at those locations.

I am not sure how their sales are, but I have noticed a lack of customers on my last several visits, and know several people who no longer feel they are a good value for what you get.

As much as I would prefer to support a local chain, they do a lot of things that don't really make sense.
