It's interesting that restaurant companies no longer want to be in the restaurant business

If Ed Renssi comes back we are in a lot more trouble.

But Rensi knew something about real restaurant operations and went on in his third or fourth career to open and operate a small chain (3) of hamburger restaurants. While Rensi perfected the art of bullying Operators he at least knew what was going on behind the counter.

I agree Rensi was risk taker (sign of leader) and stood by the risks he took. Although it never seemed he truly believed in the operator / franchisee model as he made many decisions without franchisee support. BTW – His three restaurants I believe have closed I guess he found out it his harder than he thought to operate restaurants.

While I'm sure Rensi and Dentice have found that owning and operating restaurants is more difficult than bossing around franchisees it appears they are still in business. The webpage is still live and two of the locations answered the phone today.
