Know Why Most Fast-Food Logos Are Red & Yellow
March 21, 2018

Have you ever wondered why popular fast=food chains use red and yellow colours on their hoardings and logos? There is a big psychology behind this. According to reports, customers make 60% of their decisions based on colour of the product alone and there are multiple reasons for using different colours.

Think about the advertising panels and logos of McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut. What do you find common among all these? One major similarity is the colour that they use. The science behind using these colours is called ketchup and mustard theory.

Scientists believe that both these colours have the ability to encourage viewers to eat. Also, colours are the fastest mode of communication for our brain. Yellow is a symbol of happiness, excitement, and cheer and red is an attention seeker causing triggers of appetite and hunger. Red makes us feel warm, loved and comfortable which is necessary for a good long meal. Yellow grabs our attention from a long distance and it also increases the speed of our metabolism.
Experts believe that combination of these 2 colours create the perfect combination of emotions and feelings to make people feel hungry and spend more time while having a meal.

Even if this theory is not 100 percent correct, companies do believe that there is something special about red and yellow which makes them use these colours. It is clear from the results that there is definitely a connection of colours in making us feel hungry. In the age of competing, brands use every possible tactic to attract customer and there is nothing bad about using the same colours if it effective for increasing sales.

Just between us, if Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats had but-one event to attend- it definitely would be to see The Beach Buoys (thebeachbuoys.com) on Saturday, July 21st (8pm)- hearing some really terrific things about this Michigan based band’s tribute to The Beach Boys. Like I just said, keep this between us-as I don’t want to piss-off the other scheduled bands!

***** Batch Gastropub, 30 Southwest 12th Street, Miami, Florida 33130, (305) 808-5555.

For our purposes, let’s call Batch Gastropub an “American-Style–Sports Bar.” When you check menu/prices at www.batchmiami.com you’ll also find a load of pictures–the joint is really great looking, with dark-wood booths and of-course loads of flat screen tvs (Do they still make “fat” screen tvs?)

You know and Jeff Eats knows that “sports bars” are literally a dime a dozen down here in South Florida…for sure, “we’ve all been in tons of them…and I gotta tell you, I was very impressed with Batch Gastropub.

For you drinkers out there…Batch has something like 15 (give or take) beers on tap, and maybe another 20 by the bottle.

Now let’s talk about FOOD–Jeff Eats’ real-game…

Just so you know, Batch’s menu isn’t exactly huge…that said, there are enough appetizers, burgers, salads, pizzas, entrees–so I’m thinking- no-body in your party is gonna have to stop at Wendy’s on the way home.

A recent dinner had Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and two other couples “doing”…margherita pizza, cheeseburger, hanger steak skewers, mushroom crusted mahi mahi, meatloaf, gnocchi mac & cheese/carmalized onions, truffle salt & shaved truffle cheese fries…and I gotta tell you, no one-bicthed about anything. If Jeff Eats had to give out awards, I thought that the gnocchi, fries, cheeseburger were the stars of the game. Between you and me–the gnocchi was amazing–the joint uses gnocchi with gruyere cheese and for an up-charge has 10 items that can be added to the basic dish–such as chicken, steak, bacon, carmalized onions (check the menu for the full list).

Like I said at the top, I was very impressed with Batch Gastropub…food was solid, service was good, prices exactly what you’d expect in an upscale-sports bar (you can fill in what you think these numbers should be)–one little draw back, the background music was a drop too loud for Jeff Eats’ crowd.

Gastropub is open Sunday-Thursday 11:30am-3am, Friday-Saturday 11:30am-5am.
