I just could never get past the smell of diapers.

You sure that wasn't the pizza?
Pizza is not bread.

Yep....there is HUGE money if you can get a decent sized chain going.......however, it is a MYSTERY to me why ANYONE would invest in restaurant stocks......including Chipolte......it is SUCH a roller coaster ride.....with MANY issues that don't plague other businesses........

I remember when Showbiz actually had decent pizza.  Or at least I thought they did.  I was 7.  Who knows.

I still dream about that pizza.  I thought it was the best thing on the planet.  But I was 7 as well.

Some seem to do well.  Have you ever driven past a Golden Corral at “feeding time”? The mobility scooters are bumper to bumper

Yeah cay.......I just don't know much about stocks....most of my stuff is in MF's......I guess knowing about the inside workings of different eateries leaves me shaking my head on how they can be profitable....with the instability of inventory price, the ENORMOUS employee issues, health police, trends.........know what I mean??
