I work in a steakhouse with different size steaks so I often get a question like this one.
Question : What is the difference between an 8 oz sirloin and a 12 oz sirloin?
My Reply : 4 oz.
Their reply back : Yes okay but is it this big , making a C shape with their forefinger and thumb.
My Reply : Yes about that , making another C shape with my forefinger and thumb.
Their final reply : Ah maybe I will stick with the 8 oz sirloin……
You see the reason I didn’t sell them the 12 oz is I have very large hands so my 12 oz looks bigger than their C shape formation. So always remember if the person looks small in stature always try to make the shape you make smaller than normal and if it is a hefty big person make the shape a bit bigger. This way you can always up sell to the larger steak.
For larger steaks like the strip loin use two hands and apply the same methodology.
I hope this helps anyone out there when it comes to up selling to a larger size steak or whatever it is that comes in a bigger portion.
