Leslie’s killed Silver Bullet
I’ve noticed less and less people at Silver Bullet this year. The numbers have been in decline since Leslie’s opened their bigger location. While I prefer the curd option in a poutine (as the Poutine Gods intended), I still very much enjoy the rest of the menu at Silver Bullet. It is very much comparable to what Leslie’s has to offer.
Given they’re both basically cash-only businesses (Leslie’s has debit but charges $0.50/transaction, which I find is a bit ridiculous considering how busy they are, they could easily absorb the cost, or even increase every menu item by 5 cents to offset Interac fees. To me, a busy establishment that chooses to charge extra for debit is clearly hiding money from the books).
So… other than cash vs debit, and that Silver Bullet is seasonal, why do people prefer Leslies?
How long do you think it’ll be before Leslie’s officially puts Silver Bullet out of business?
(and I am not employed nor have I ever been employed or professionally affiliated with either of these establishments. I’m just another Sudbury fatty who loves good fries, good chicken fingers or a good burger! lol)
