Puzder believes the ads are no longer effective in reaching young male consumers--and may hurt efforts to reach a broader market. “The Millennial young guys are concerned with, ‘where do you source your beef, what kind of cooking system do you have and we’re the only national brand with all-natural beef, all-natural chicken, charbroiling, hand scooping.”
