Raising Canes has dominated the last two plus pages of random musings. That speaks to the power of the franchise right there.

Kind of in the same vein....

Smash burger and chicken tender restaurants (aside from the fast food chains of which there are also many) have blown up over the past decade it seems. Over that time the following rest's have opened within say 10 miles of my houuse:

Chicken Tender places
Slim Chickens x 3
Gus's Fried Chicken
Umpteen million cheddars chicken stands in gas stations

Burger places
Wayback
Mooyah x2
Davids Burgers x 1000000
Five Guys x 2

All these restaurants both burger and chicken, and it seems Raising Canes is in the same mold, seem to be targeting the crowd that doesn't want the fast food (zaxbys, chick-fil-a, mcdonalds, freddys, etc) and will spend a little more time and a little more money (I'd guess average order is $10 compared to, what, $7 at a fast food joint). And, that makes sense. The topic has been covered on here quite well, iirc. But, what blows my mind is how all these new restaurants I listed and there are quite a few of them are doing quite well. The burger places all more/less serve the same thing. Sure if you want to get nuanced, you can argue if David's or Five Guys is better and I'm sure make valid points. But, for people like me/my fam, we're not that discerning and the choice often times comes down to which one is more convenient as they're both perfectly great burgers. Same thing with chicken. But, with chicken it's even less discerning and ChickFilA is the closest place. Which makes me wonder, how in the world are they all thriving. Especially given that not only are they competing with well established fast food chains but also with each other, all of whom are targeting the same demo that doesn't want fast food for one reason or another. Blows my mind.

I feel very fortunate. Lot of guys here still not done either. I've still got beans to plant, but it's raining again so who knows when. The good news is if we have to we can run both planters on beans and we can knock out 400-500 acres a day. So we just need three good days.
