At least Subway sells drinks at full margin and $4.99 sub is only 40% F&P cost we sell Happy Meals and Bacon McDoubles at 45% F&P cost, drinks at $1; try being a McDonald's Franchisee.

The article, mentions Culvers home of the Butter Burger, frozen custard & does very little discounting, has high AUV's not too hard to be a Culver franchisee.

Culver's doesn't have Wall Street jerking them around. They can run it like a real business.

Spot on. Case in point - the 10 year required remodel policy. Although I agree with seating and decor refreshes, it is LUDICROUS to tear up perfectly good tile floors and ceilings. Wasteful. Where was the NLC to oppose this????
