Wild Wing’s Pricing Structure is a Joke – 2 Pounds More Expensive Than 2 x 1 Pound?

Recently a Wild Wing opened up about a 2 minute walk from my home.  As I am a very big fan of wings, I thought to myself:  ”This is going to be dangerous!  I’m going to have wings once a week now that they’re so accessible…”  Lucky for me, their ridiculous pricing structure will  prevent me from ever returning.

 

Being a growing man (mostly just horizontally at this point), I tend to need more than just a pound of wings to be satisfied.  I generally go for two pounds.  As I was browsing the menu, I immediately noticed what must be a mistake in Wild Wing’s pricing structure:

 

Wild Wing Menu with Stupid Pricing Structure

 

 

An order of DOUBLE wings (18 pieces) is more expensive two SINGLE orders (9 pieces).  A double order is $19.99, yet two single orders is $19.98.  Usually pricing is set up to reward the customer that purchases more in a single order.   I asked the server if this was a mistake and was informed that this is how it has always been.

 

I understand that it’s only a penny, but it’s the principle that bugs me here.  Fortunately, this joke of a pricing structure has caused me to never want to return to Wild Wing.  I will now be able to keep my manly figure and save some money for my upcoming trip to build houses for the poor in Guatemala – more details on this and how you can help to follow.

    I’ve been to several locations and noticed their prices were odd. Usually more wings are cheaper. I will not go back to Wild Wing after I had 2 bad experiences (undercooked wings and another time burnt). The service was always mediocre.

    I have gone to WW a few times at different locations (usually with friends). I was served burnt wings (by the airport inToront, undercooked (still cold in the centre). Fries that are mediocre at best.

    there wings aren’t even that good……………

    only an idiot would come up with that pricing structure. It provides NO incentive to purchase larger orders of wings.
