You know, I'm pretty much a laissez faire, pro-corporate capitalist, but sometimes I'm stunned by the numbers that come out of big business these days. $1.575B for 9,742 locations (the vast majority of which are franchises)? If I mashed the numbers on my calculator correctly, that's about $161,000 per location.
And I just came from reading the Donaldo's Casa de Pizza
thread in Shop Talk.
