It has recently been reported that several restaurant chains are in economic woe. This list was determined if they have a credit rating of B or lower, and S&P assigns them a negative outlook.
In addition to El Torito, Sbarro, and Captain D’s, 2 of my FAVORITE eating facilities are on the list:
WTH?? We must band together Hot Mamas and Hot Papas. This CANNOT happen. We’ve already seen Bennigan’s and Steak & Ale become casualties to this recession.
Many would consider Krispy Kreme and Mastro’s culinary luxuries, but that’s debatable.
If you asked me when I was pregnant, I would say Krispy Kreme’s glazed donuts and Mastro’s Vanilla Battered Loster Tails and Gorgonzola Mac and Cheese were daily essentials.
Even Morris would attest to the necessity of Krispy Kreme. Especially since they made his birthday cake.
So, let’s get out there and EAT! EAT! EAT! people.
