    Red Lobster’s endless shrimp deal was too popular, company says
    CNN, Nov 29 2023 5:10 PM EST

    It was a simple plan. Business tends to slow down at Red Lobster locations during the third and fourth quarters, so its parent company, Thai Union, launched a new promotion. For $20, customers could eat as much shrimp as they wanted. The promotion has been a tradition at the chain for more than 18 years, but in June the company announced that endless shrimp would become a permanent fixture on the menu. The plan turned out a little too well. More customers took advantage of the seafood chain’s “Ultimate Endless Shrimp” than expected – the key reason for the chain’s roughly $11 million loss in the third quarter of 2023.
