  1. Re: The Melt article

    Truly a case of ego over actual talent.

    Too many variables in food service for it to succeed in the same way as tech (primarily food ingredients at the food service level do not operate like 0s and 1s).

    Also, the innovation ultimately put forward my McDonalds works because of impersonal, line manufactured food. The hipster The Melt grilled cheeses were looking to fuse handmade with that line quality and you can’t have both.

  2. RE: Dunkin’ Donuts article

    I can see why DD changed the spelling. Dunkin’ Donuts looks much better than Dunkin Doughnuts. Also it would be easier to print Dunkin’ Donuts on packaging.

    Oh and they do have the best doughnuts anywhere!
