If you had included the above info in the first place, this would have been a short thread. That’s a generous offer.
So if you get a few Burger King employees for free lunch everyday, how does that impact your bottom line in regards to the cost of ice.
Hey- you started all this "crap"! Also, there is alot of info in your most recent post that wasn’t made known to the people making those "most ridiculous coments" that you’ve ever read! If you respond to this or any other posts from here on out, my guess is that you don’t consider this such a waste of your life after all! Gee- I wonder what happens when a customer of yours gives you a hard time?! For all you know, some of your customers may be right here!
Well, if it works for you, then more power to you. I just think that if everyone who runs a cart starts going to Burger King and asking them for free ice every day, they’re going to put a stop to it almost immediately.
And since you didn’t bother to explain until you were asked about it the things you do in return for the employees at your particular Burger King, how were we to know that you did ANYTHING for them?
If you read what you wrote objectively, you will realize that your original post makes you look cheap, freeloading, and willing to cut whatever corners necessary to increase your profit.

I think these are some of the most ridiculous comments I’ve ever read.
I spoke to the manager and explained it was for my buisness, and its 2 lousy 80 can coolers. I still need to buy Ice when Im at my spot.
I also offered anyone from that Burger King free lunch whenever they want.
I dont cut corners with anything in my buisness. Just need to make a living. Every little bit helps.
Someone asked if I lowered my prices to share it with the customer. ‘Thats Absurd’
If you found a cheaper supplier for one of your products would you lower your price. I dont think so.
I shouldnt even be typing this much to justify my actions or my buisness but These comments are really out of hand.
Someone also used the words grovel and beg. I didnt grovel or beg just asked once about the policy and they were actually very excited to help me. They’ve been to my cart before and liked my food.
Do you know how much crap I give away to people or cut people breaks when they eat my cart.
I really dont see how anyone would have a problem with the actions of this what so ever. I told everyone because sometimes the grass isnt always green and its nice to catch a break once and a while.
I’ll will cut corners in any way shape or form if its so I DONT have to sacrifice cutting corners with the quality of the food. Isnt that what its all about.
I cant believe I just wasted 5 minutes of my life typing all this crap.
My thought exactly.
First load of ice from BK: A gracious gift.
Any further loads of ice from BK: You proving just how far some people will go to be a sponge and a schnorrer.
Its a business supply therefore not able to be written off.I am with you guys-I buy what I need when I need-I just felt both sides of the coin needed to be examined…I for one would be too embarrassed to go somewhere day after day and get free anything.Heck, i return unused ketchup packs to the staff at restaurants!!
If someone’s cheap enough to ask Burger King for ice, there’s no telling how he or she cuts corners on his/her products. If you can’t afford the basics to run your business, you shouldn’t be running a business.
..btw..wouldn’t ice be a business expense one could write off
when paying the IRS?
PP, I’m with you. Every time we go camping or boating the first stop out of town is to buy block ice.
When I need something, I buy it. I don’t have to beg for freebies.
The gentleman told Burger King what he needed the ice for and they approved and gave him free ice.The only mistake that was made was posting his "find"-if the word gets around then I am sure Burger King will stop this practice if they become flooded with requests for free ice.No offense all, but "much ado about nothing"
This is soooo true!!
Wal-Mart used to allow RVers to stay overnight in their parking lots. Some still do, but many do not because people took advantage. Instead of just using the lot for a place to sleep, some people were rolling out awnings, putting out lawn chairs and even setting up the BBQ. There was a Wal-Mart in NJ about 40 miles from NYCity and people were camping there for several days, using it as a place to stay while they drove in and out of NY City in their towed cars. It would seem pretty obvious that was taking advantage of a generous offer, but I saw this happening every time I went past this place.
