Love chain restaurants? Hate chain restaurants? We’re talking about them all – your Texas Roadhouses, your Cheesecake Factories, your Pizza Huts, and Melting Pots – and about the impact they have on small restaurants and our overall dining experience. Then we chat about West Virginia’s new, relaxed cottage food law regulations, and how food businesses can now work outside of a commercial kitchen. Finally, we have some big Brunchburgh news….
We chat about our favorite restaurants (Texas Roadhouse for Emily! Waffle House for Madeline!), and ones that we don’t get so much. Plus, what impact do chain restaurants have on the bottom line of other restaurants?
Cottage Food Laws are (basically) laws that allow people to make food to sell in their own home kitchens, without having to work within a commercial kitchen. The laws have very recently become very relaxed in West Virginia, and it makes a big difference in the state of the economy. We also talk about Shef, a Bay Area-startup that’s taking the actual cooking step out of programs like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh.
We have some news… Brunchburgh is coming back! We’re thisclose to announcing a date and selling tickets, and if you want to be one of the first ones to know, get on our email list – we’ll announce there before we announce anywhere else.
Finally, the best things we ate this week came from Pork & Beans and Duncan Street Sandwich Shop.
Thanks so much for listening, everyone!
