which is odd to a certain extent.
If a restaurant does WELL, and the family who owns it opens another....
and IT does well..
and they CAN afford to open a few more, lets say not going over 10..They are called a chain, yet it is still a family business, owned my someone local and what most people are looking for.
Yet they get snubbed.
My friend Maria owns a really popular taco shop here in Austin. She has gone round and round about possibly opening another yet she knows she will lose that ' home store' attitude that people have for her stuff if she does this.
Yet the demand is MORE than she can accommodate in her one location.
Talk about a double edged sword
