Two things control food cost, the wholesale price the business pays for their food and the volume it sales. Five Guys, like almost all chains, require the food be purchased from approved vendors. Price of a box of meat and a bag of studs is set by Five Guys and owners cannot shop around. Therefor, you HAVE TO change XX for a burger to keep food costs under 34%. If you are over 34% you will fail unless you have great volume. If you are at 34% but have shitty sales like Rome FG did, you will also fail. Bottom line is Romans will not pay for quality, End of Story.
NO! Romans will NOT pay for a 10 dollar hamberger! The greedy owners got what they deserved!END OF STORY!

Fact is, the most expensive burger on the menu was a two patty bacon cheeseburger, which sold for around $6.49. I know, I ate about one a week. No where on Five Guys menu is there a $10 burger.

To say that the owners who NEVER made a profit in Rome and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars opening that store and lost thousands each year "Got what they deserved" is beyond stupid.

Well, not fer nuttin', but I don't enjoy being yelled at when I walk in the door."WELCOME TO MOE'S!!" And then hearing the same cry and commotion every time another customer walks through the door. "WELCOME TO MOE'S !!!"

The food is okay. Lots of variety on the menu. The chips and variety of salsas is fun. The prices are a bit higher than TB's, but that's to be expected. If only they would stop yelling....

Ate there recently. Counter worker overcharged me for extra hamburger. Quoted 70 cents+. Charged me nearly $2. Three bored guys working who could not care less whether anyone came in or not .... welcome to Moe's? You would hardly know it. Poor hiring practices will close this place. I won't be back and neither will my friends. The owner needs to clean house and find workers hungry to make a living... or just accept the fact that the business will close soon due to poor management.

Yet 5 Guys and Moe's succeed everywhere else. Its about time you Rome turds realized that its not the greedy owners or the food thats the problem, Its YOU! You find non caring workers there because they are from ROME and no one from Rome has no interest in anything other than getting high and blaming everyone else for their problems. Romans have no pride, no self esteem and no interest in moving up to better themselves. They live in a cesspool, turn their work place into a cesspool and raise generation after generaion of kids who do the same. That's what turds do.

WELCOME TO ROME!

Really ! Do you have a clue how much money it would cost to BUILD a " nice " sit down restaurant? It's in the millions to build anywhere IN THE USA!! Just to meet the codes regulations, fire, etc. this city couldn't put enough people thru the doors to support that kind of investment!! That is why you DO NOT SEE CHAIN RESTAURANTS building in ROME!! That's why 5 GUYS CLOSED, FRIENDLY'S CLOSED, DAIRY QUEEN CLOSED, When and if MOE'S comes to town they will follow 5 guy's out in the same time frame!! Not a large enough pool of consumers, especially in this CHEAP town!!
I been to Moes more times then I had went to 5 Guys for a few reasons. Moes will last longer then 5 guys expensive burger joint

Sadly, I agree. This wasn't true of Rome back in the '70's, but nowadays.....yeah.
