Sign Of The Times: Red Lobster And Olive Garden To Combine, Red Garden Or Olive Lobster???

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Did You Know, Hate It or Love It?!?!, Making it Rain on Them Hoes

This bad economy sh*t is getting real out there people and your local Olive Garden and Red Lobster is trying to do something about it.

Here’s depressing news from our nation’s most depressing state. Residents of Flagler County, FL are eagerly awaiting the opening of a two-in-one Red Lobster/Olive Garden restaurant, hoping it will provide much needed jobs and revitalize a struggling community.

For the first time, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants is combining two of its most popular chains. Red Lobster with Olive Garden in one building.

More importantly, it’s expected to bring in new jobs to an area struggling to put people to work.

Two teens showed up to see if they were hiring yet, which is expected to happen in the next two weeks.

“Everybody is going to try to get these jobs. It’s the new business in town and everybody’s going to be looking for a job here,” said job hopeful Tyler Rush.

There’s nothing funny about people being out of work, nothing at all. But that it’s a combination of a Red Lobster, home of the 1,280-calorie Admiral’s Feast, and an Olive Garden, land of the 1,440-calorie Chicken Alfredo, that a struggling Florida community is turning to as its last best hope is the kind of thing that… well, just sigh. Sigh. I hope you get the job, Tyler. I hope everyone does.

Sounds like a great move for the economy and a terrible move for your health, but hey, people gotta eat right??

  • Mabel

    If it’s in an area ‘struggling to put people to work..” as the article states, who will have the money to dine there? I hope it works out for them.

    They’re owned by the same parent company. This is nothing new. I’ve been getting gift cards for Red L from my job for years and on the back it says “card can also be used at Olive Garden, Smokey Bones and Bahama Breeze”. They’re all owned by the same conglomerate.

  • white girls have STD's

    I love Olive Garden. When my bf wants to wine and dine me he takes me to Olive Garden.

    • white girls have STD's

      If anyone was wondering that is my bf in my avatar.

    • IHATEBROKEPEOPLE

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but those low budget restaurants are not places where you should take someone to wine and dine them. I seriously doubt that have any good wine at Red Lobster…LOL

      Raise your standards honey! Poor thing!

    • Tasha

      @White girls have stds

      PLZ STFU HOE

  • IHATEBROKEPEOPLE

    Do people still eat at those places? Wooow. I’d be pissed if anyone I knew wanted to eat at a Red Lobster, the most low quality seafood on the planet. YUCK! Up here in Maine, we have excellent seafood.

      Ok 1st…anyone with the screen name “Ihatebrokepeople” is definitely broke.
      2nd , have you had the garlic cheese biscuits?? I rest my case.

  • JS58

    How about you actually do your research?

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-hybrid-olive-garden-red-lobster-20110124,0,80598.story

    The restaurants aren’t actually combined(minus the kitchen), just built adjacent to each other so no you can’t order items from both menus. Wait…who even thought this was newsworthy?? Clearly someone who loves either one or both of the restaurants lol

  • IHATEBROKEPEOPLE

    Ok 1st…anyone with the screen name “Ihatebrokepeople” is definitely broke.

    —————————–
    I’m allergic to garlic and I despise anything with cheese in it, on it or around it-YUCK! I hate broke people because they’re constantly begging me for money. If you invest wisely, you’ll never be broke..LOL at your so-called insult. Now take your broke a-s-s to Red Lobster while I head to Smith & Wollensky.

    • v

      mmmmm more garlic cheese biscuits for me !

  • Sweet Ingredients

    I don’t care I am THERE!!!

    They should have included the sodium content for those dishes. I bet it’s well over 2000mg. I have to stay away from anywhere, where I can get both garlic bread sticks and cheddar biscuits. My self control just isn’t that good. I remember when they used to serve apple sauce and I would sprinkle the biscuits over it, so good, those were the days when I could eat what I wanted and not gain an ounce. Now, it’s best I forgo most restaurants, I’m not trying have high BP or cholesterol.
