Fast food fans, we've got some bad news. Wholesale prices on a bunch of your favorite food products have seen sharp increases this year. Among those, beef and avocados are through the roof, hitting burrito-makers doubly hard.
Because of huge price increases for beef and avocados, Chipotle is raising menu prices for the first time in three years. It's a reality that a lot of restaurants are facing due to rising food prices.

How could this happen? /S
We can all thank the Pres, Harry, and SanFranNan.
Food prices don’t count as inflation. They’re considered too volatile, and aren’t part of the calcs.
The good news is if you have been investing in this sham stockmarket you may not fell the pinch so fast, but stand by because you are going to get such a pinch!
Energy does not count either.
Figure lie and liars figure.
It has already happened.
Paid almost $8 for a steak bowl last night.
When you artificially inject money into the system by borrowing massive amounts of money to fund utopian federal projects prices will rise...
Friggin hamburger is $5 to $6 an lb here!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO>................NOT DUNKIN' DONUTS!
Most of their ingredients are imported. The exchange rate of the dollar is dropping through the floor. That drives the price up, because your dollar buys less on the world market. This applies to all commodities bought and sold in $US. At the rate that we are inflating at, expect your local dollar store to become the $5 or $10 store in the near future. The squeeze is on.
Probably because of climate change.....
Not surprised about Dunkin Donuts, been going the way of Starbucks as of late.
Print more money!
So overpriced places will become even more overpriced.... nothing new here.
As to the CheeseCake Factory in particular, you know you got balls when you not only grotesquely overcharge your customers for your food, but then force them to be bombarded with advertisements in your menu for other products and services...
The fact this company is in business at all proves to me just how completely moronic the average person is.
Im sure a panel will be assembled to prove the theory.
Stop issuing EBT cards, and the price of food will fall back to 2008 levels.
If you remove food, fuel, energy, gasoline, diesel, commodities, clothing, taxes, health care, professional services, utilities, taxes, fees, and travel there is no inflation. Anyone who says otherwise hates women and children and is a racist.
Another problem easily solved by the amnesty of 20 million “undocumented” Americans.
Never mind the menu price increases.
Are they paying all their employees at least $15.00 an hour? Will full benefits?
That’s the important thing here.
