Denny's Downtime

When business is slow

I am a new Transfer student to University at Buffalo in my second semester here. Since I moved here, I have taken up at job as a cook and server at a local Denny's on Maple rd. I have worked at 3 other Denny's stores in my life, however this store has been one of my favourites to work at.

Many things change in the store during the winter time. Due to the stores proximity to UB North campus, it does have a regular and relatively steady amount of business, however January and February tend to be slower months. The slowness is usually attributed to the holiday season being over and many people stop spending money for a time after. Weather also plays a part occasionally when roads get snow covered and travel becomes dangerous. Most, of our very busy nights are the result of local events that end, Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast crowds, and our late night bar crowd. In order to stimulate business, Denny's employs the use of special promotional menu items. This video shows a commercial that has been aired to advertise one of the new items on the menu.

Based on this weather forecast and my experience in this restaurant, I think that the restaurant will likely be busy this weekend.

The city of Buffalo is an upstate New York city located in the north-western border of the state and Canada. During my first year here, the winters have lived up to their reputation of being long and very snowy. However, it is a very beautiful city that has some of the best food in all of New York.
