    You're a Super TOol that loves to **** on those that don't have your impressive skills, insight and track record. You wish only to impress the JI mooks; everyone else be damned.

    Each post ties you to your ridiculous idea of "Winners and Losers"; I can get better information on The View.

    I would never own one. Owner in a GREAT scenario will net less than or around 100K most , the typical owner nets well MUCH less.

    AFTER putting in a ton of their own money.
    I was wondering what they went for. The one near me is doing amazing business. Constant stream of people...only 3 kids working at a time. A really smooth system. I was commenting more on the chance for fraud that Gramps brought up.

    If the store does about 700K you lose money.

    I thought they bit the dust in the early 90s's. They were everywhere. I was a big fan of the white chocolate mousse.

    The new self serve model is coming back strong with LOTS of competition.

    Soooooo..... a black guy complains about a black president, who was voted for by blacks who said they would vote for him strictly because he was black.



    yeah.

    Maybe he should look in the mirror for the problem.

    I'm talking about Froyo World.

    They have taken the concept and trimmed it down nicely. all self serve, get your frozen yogurt, add you toppings, pay by the weight. Fast, easy, very clean and delicious.

    Input because you're smart as hell but work for a living: TCBY is one of the franchises that has lost a major number of locations in the past couple years.
    Blimpie is another. Big Boy also. Quiznos. Plus plenty on the ropes.

    I read once: "Own nothing but control everything, you'll never lose". Good if can do it. Food sounds good but a killer.

    That pretty accurate. You're use of "tool", however, displays your lack of proper upbringing. Just saying.
    I am better than you. And there are winners (I am one) and losers (perhaps you are in that category).

    JI mooks? Anyone in particular as long as you're labelling?

    The use of profanity BTW shows a marked lack of intelligence and maturity.

    The View? Not surprised you're a watcher. You're feminine West Coast side? Shows you're well rounded.

    I have never, in 25 years as a CPA, found anyne who bought a franchise like you describe, and done well long term.

    Many make a living..... most barely do.

    If they were so good to own, they would be hard to get. they are not.

    It is a losing proposition from an opportunity cost standpoint.

    I don't see low end eateries doing so well in your area CPA, kinda like opening a jack in the box in the four seasons lobby.
