|Managers’ quotations regarding sales||Full adopter||Semi-adopter||Non-adopter|
|Sales of healthy items compared to sales of less healthy items||“Whether we like it or not they don't want cucumbers with light organic dressing.. What sells is fries and poutine.”||“French fries is what I sell the most.”||“There’s nobody in this business can make money [selling healthy foods].” “If you’re offering the choices they’re always going to go for the unhealthy choice.”|
|Perceived impact of the ANGCY on sales||“It’s devastating… Horrible, our sales have been reduced.”||“Sales dropped 50%.”||“If we went into a high school doing $100,000 a year in sales, you’d be lucky to see $20,000 [if we implemented the ANGCY]. And I’ve done it – in [another province] not here.”|
