  • Can a brother in Sunset Heights get a big green bin?

  • Re: Galveston Bay Superfund Site story – the story is unavailable from that link.

  • The Dunkin Donuts article says the 9 stores will be opened “by 2020.” Seven years to open fast food franchises sounds ridiculously farsighted (and subject to market conditions). I wonder if that time scale is normal in franchise planning.

  • I’m confused by the Dunkin Donuts article myself Superdave. Are they bringing 9 by 2020, 16 by 2018, 24 over “several years”, or are we getting a total of 49 new Dunkin Donuts with three separate franchise deals? Seven years advance planning seems quite obtuse for such an endeavor. It only took 8 years of planning to reach the moon.

  • 49 separate Dunkins via 3 different franchising deals over the next 7 years.

    That’s a lot less than the original 175+ that they had planned over 7 years back in 2008
