Dear Bloomin Brands Inc,
My name is Ashmit, and I am in 4th grade at Mary Evans Elementary School in Allen, TX. For my gifted and talented project, I need to innovate an invention. I chose to make a pipe in each steakhouse, which pulls the air pollution to a hole underground, but this is harmful to soil, so I would cover up the soil using aluminum foil. I want to survey if people like or dislike this. Please be honest because I will take this as a learning experience. Since you are the experts, I can make this a really great project with your help. If possible, please send your opinion from Outback Steakhouse, Plano, TX, and please send your opinion as soon as possible.
