Many of you have commented on how unfair it is that a community resource like India Joze is dependent upon so many people randomly deciding to go out to eat. I am trying to address the peculiar nature of food establishments, that have such tremendous start up costs and on-going overhead, with relatively low incremental costs for each customer. Discount coupons have always seemed unfair to me; the loyal customers who pay full price are subsidizing the coupon-clippers looking for a deal.
One idea I have to turn that around is to sell tiered gift certificates. The more expensive ones come with huge discounts, so a $1000 gift certificate would be worth $1200 in food. The less expensive ones would be less discounted, so a $500 gift certificate would be worth $550.
The further way I honor an ongoing committment to Joze is this. So long as you hold $1000 in gift certificates that you haven't spent, you get a 20% discount on everything: classes, catering, equipment, restaurant food and to go stuff.
(Except gift certificates: you have to buy $1000 in gift certificates to get the 20% discount.) This is a way for India Joze to pay dividends to the Joze community.
