    Why not cut back management hours to 28 per week? And, while you're at it, are you paying healthcare costs for your executive officers? Why? You could save even more money by cutting their benefits off, too.

    For that matter, you're probably overpaying for executive staff. You could do a lot better by outsourcing their jobs to a cheaper area. I hear that China and India are cheaper. You could probably find executive material there, cheaper, and they might even do a better job.

    China and India too pricey for you? How about Brazil or Russia? In fact, Vietnam has bargain basement prices, and a highly-trained workforce. If you're paying over $60,000 per year for any of those people, obviously you're way overpaying.

    You might consider substituting TVP for cow in your burgers. It's cheaper and arguably healthier. Just think of the money you'd save.

    And, then, there's the bun. There's a new bun you should try called the "air bun". It has no carbohydrates, fats, sugars or protein. It isn't quite as good at holding the patty to the pickle, but it is far less expensive than one made from wheat.

    Just a thought that can save you a bunch of money!
