One big BLAH for Olive Garden

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I was complaining about there not being an Olive Garden in the whole state of Alaska.
That is the one restaurant that I really miss after living in Ohio.

Well I got a bright idea shortly after I tweeted how unhappy I was about it.
Email them!!

So I sat down at my computer and googled their website and clicked that pretty Contact Us link.
I told them that they were my favorite restaurant and was really sad that there wasn't a restaurant in Alaska.

Well they actually answered back!!!
But it sucked.

Dear Nikke:

Thank you for your inquiry regarding Anchorage, Alaska as a potential location for the Olive Garden. We are always delighted to hear from our guests and very much appreciate your gracious comments.

While there are many sites in Anchorage that do meet our demographic requirements, logistically we cannot support a restaurant there at this time. Many of our suppliers do not service Alaska, and it would not be cost effective for the company-and in the long run a good investment for our shareholders-to buy and distribute from companies with whom we do not have contracts. Knowing the viability of the market; however, we are working on solutions to this challenge.

Once again, we thank you for your inquiry and really appreciate your enthusiasm for Olive Garden.

Well that sucks!
I've have been in search for a good italian restaurant here in Alaska, but have not been able to find one.
I guess I'll just have to settle for my mediocre attempts of dishing out some good dishes.

Thank you Mark from Olive Garden responding to me.
I hope to see Olive Garden in Alaska in the future.
