Canned green beans. What was he thinking? Just buy whatever vegetable you could get fresh and skip the beans.
Meat ball guy. Oh boy. He is just not doing well and may be next out. How about a varity of meat balls with different sauces and stick to sandwiches on ciabatta or in a dish for those who want to skip the bread? Why is he having so much trouble? If he wanted to expand, offer crustini with different toppings, side of pasta, green salad, and Caprese salad. A plate of spaghetti and meat balls is so common and not easily transported back to work or eaten in a car.
I love Spice Coast and I see him as the winner. It is something new on the fast food scene and has huge possibilities for success. It hasn't been done before. It is new and fresh.
