Restaurant Show May be Good for Restaurants but the Jury is out on Franchises

Attended the teeny weeny restaurant show here in Chicago last Sunday. It was 75 degrees and I had been working hard the whole week, traveling, entertaining clients, etc so of course I wanted to work on this lovely sunny day.  NOT! 

But it was interesting seeing the Franchise Pavilion brought to you by Nation's Restaurant News, the venerable trade of the restaurant industry and the International Franchise Association.  I have to say I was so excited to see the Erbert & Gerbert truck--it was so cute I wanted one to go in my backyard. If you attended or exhibited, let me know how you did there!
