This blogger breaks down
Wendy's second attempt to enter the mid-range burger market with its new "Son of Baconator" burger. Apparently it's "W" burger was a major failure because it was kind of no-man's-land where it didn't appeal to those wanting value or those who wanted a premium burger. Good to see the chain is learning from it's past mistakes.
I think lots of restaurants can learn from this type information. Often time the success or failure of a new menu item has more to do with how it's positioned from a price point than how it actually tastes.
