    Performance

    Well, as I said in Dec. this concept has major issues that won't get fixed eaisly. Execution is only part of the problem; tired and less then inovative BB will most likely show negative results next quarter. GC being off double digits compounds the problem.

    • frischs needs to bring in some new menu items. the chicken alfredo isn't a big seller in some of their resteraunts. they need to bring back meatloaf, steak, ect. to get the working people back in there. offer a deal like big boys for .99 only when you order fries or onion rings and a coke... i know money is important but the working folks wants a deal too... work with the folks and listen to them and frischs will see a profit....

      • I grew up eating Big Boys, I think they opened a shop near my school in 1954. Ate the filet de sole on Fridays, the Bog Boy or the great cube steak on a rye bun with Bermuda onion other days. Really good food, and the onion rings were magnificent. Shakes pretty fine too. This was in the days of car- hops and hot rods and pick-up time at Frisch�s

        I haven�t been back to Cincy in a while- are the restaurants looking well maintained? I had breakfast in a Frisch�s down on Central Parkway in '98 I think. It was looking pretty tired. Of course, that is not exactly a prime neighborhood either. I ate in A Golden Corral in Dayton a few years ago; I thought it was OK but certainly nothing unique.

        There ought to be a lot of real estate value here- so even if they just manage to do so-so in operations, FRS should be a reasonably safe investment. Management seems at least honest if not cutting edge. I imagine that is what the non-family large holders see here.

        I don't own any FRS stock now, but I will buy if it comes down over the summer and if some of the problems seem to be on the mend.
