    R there any Frisch's in the business?

    I am totally new to this company. Did the Frisch's sell out at some point or are they still involved in the operations? Are they big shareholders?

    • FRS was founded in 1923, and the founders are long since dead since I don't see any insiders with a Frisch in their name. Institutional investors are very big owners of the stock.
      It's had a very good record over the last years since it became a public company.
      According to VL, since 1998 it's earnings have increased by 14.5% per year, and it's raised it's dividend from 28 cents to 44 cents a share.
      It's been profitable every year since it became public- in the seventies I think.
      -About as good as any public restaurant chain.
      -And it's up about 20% in the year or so, since I bought it.
      It had a bad year last year (earnings were down from the previous year).
      -But the stock was up about 3% today, on reasonable volume, so investors seem to think that earnings will be good this year.
