This is a story about how I emailed into a bakery chain in London to request that they make their croissants bigger.

A few days ago emailed some feedback into the management team of PAUL, a French bakery chain in London where I buy my breakfast. I emailed because I wasn’t happy about the appearance (and particularly the size) of their croissants. I simply suggested that they should make them bigger. Here is the email I wrote and the picture I attached to the email.

Subject: Can they get any bigger?

I am a regular at Paul, the Strand Branch, where I buy – like many others – a cup of tea and a piece of pastry every morning. I like the quality, however, the appearance (size) of your croissants could be better. More people would buy them if they were bigger. Thanks
