    Report: Ponce de Leon Store, Atlanta

    Good news and bad news for the longs/shorts. Went to the store today around 11:30am. Saw 2 cars in the drive thru as I walked in, then 3 cars as I was leaving. I drove by again a few minutes later and saw one car in the drive thru. Not an impressive numbers of cars.

    Anyhow, what I found amazing in this visit was that I saw at least 16 KKD employees inside the store! I counted twice, and got the same number. And I probably missed at least 1 in one of the drive thru windows. Are these good news or bad news?
    I counted a total of 7 customers seating eating donuts, plus one more at the counter (so that is, two employees per customer). Maybe I went by during the change from the morning to the afternoon shift. Maybe the store is mobbed in the morning and they need these numbers of employees, but it certainly wasn't mobbed when I went there. How much is KKD paying in salaries for these employees? Seems like the break-even point for this particular store must be much higher than the quoted $20-25K. It will be interesting to see the number of employees one month from now, will check that later.

    Mongoloid/wacko X59, don�t forget to post some garbage in reply to this post.

    • Digenetic:

      I continue to feel sorry for you in your having to resort to responding to your own posts (and your alter ego therein) because nobody else will.

      So, consider this a response.

    • ... continuing on ...

      You mentioned

      -- The NoCal scandal
      -- The McAleer looting
      -- The $28 million lady
      -- The $9 million director
      -- The franchise ownership conflicts
      -- The going-on $1 billion insider bailouts
      -- Book cooking

      ... yes I did.

      But left us hanging with the $28 million lady.

      ... ah, yes. That was Margaret M. Urquhart. Joined KK in December, 1999 as Executive VP in charge of store operations. Seemed fully qualified, but left a year later, abruptly and without explanation. Her take for a year's work was $28 million, options included. I believe it was Divursifi who worked the numbers.

      ... $28 million for overseeing a bunch of donut shops?

      Seems like a lot. Curious as to the full story, perhaps Doofus can explain it away?

      ... likely not interested. No nose for gossip there.

      The $9 million director?

      ... later. More to come.

      Can you document this nonsense?

      ... of course, would kindly old Diogenes lead you astray?

    • I'm not sure I know what you are talking about when you mention the $28M Lady. What is that about?

    • Digenetic:

      Your recent bout of masochism on this board related:

      "Rats. He-who-would-speak-for-everyone, the obtuse one, tells us these matters mean nothing to anyone."


      Why must you speak in riddles?

      Do you fear retribution verbal, physical, or otherwise from the person you are apparently afraid to identify?


      "More later as necessary or should interest wane"

      As you stated in your post ..."please spare us."

      The interest has LONG since waned and, as evidenced by your pitiful posts, you are preaching to yourself, and you and I are the only ones responding to those pitiful posts.

      Which reminds me....

      Please stop talking with your alter ego long enough to answer five questions:

      1)Why do you post these first person chicken little tiring epistles?

      2) Have you read the "Three Faces of Eve?"

      3) Do you liken yourself to di_vur_se_fi as the Erin Brokovich of the donut business
      out to save the lives and money of all those who would (gasp!) even consider buying
      (or have bought) KKD stock?

      4) Are you foolish enough to think your cute schizoid soapboxes will actually convince
      someone on this board to sell their KKD stock?

      5) Or do you just like to read your posts on a computer screen?

    • Rats. He-who-would-speak-for-everyone, the obtuse one, tells us these matters mean nothing to anyone. Maybe I should explain, just to make the point?

      ... sometimes points aren't readily understood, but try.

      -- The NoCal scandal.

      This has to do with Livengood attempting to broker himself a part of a franchise deal. For himself, personally. Cost KKD shareholders $9 million cash to settle the mess. The Board of Directors apparently looked the other way. This should be of interest to shareholders, perhaps to a District Attorney, most certainly to any scandal-mongering journalist.

      -- The McAleer looting.

      This involves self-dealing of a company insider, $60-odd million of KK cash being drained into his pocket at a time when cash was short. Of interest you'd think to any banker considering the syndication, certainly of interest to KKD shareholders.

      -- The $28 million lady.

      The stuff of gossip columnists, maybe Woman's Wear Daily. Or in Winston-Salem ... "local gal makes good."

      .... spare us. You've made your point. 'Snuf's enuf.

      More later as necessary or should interest wane.

    • Digenetic:

      Senility is setting in.

      You keep preaching these epistles over and over again.

      They mean nothing to anyone.

      Must you and I be the only ones responding to your posts?

      More importantly, please stop talking with your alter ego long enough to answer five
      questions:

      1)Why do you post these first person chicken little tiring epistles?

      2) Have you read the "Three Faces of Eve?"

      3) Do you liken yourself to di_vur_se_fi as the Erin Brokovich of the donut business
      out to save the lives and money of all those who would (gasp!) even consider buying
      (or have bought) KKD stock?

      4) Are you foolish enough to think your cute schizoid soapboxes will actually convince
      someone on this board to sell their KKD stock?

      5) Or do you just like to read your posts on a computer screen?

    • Your posts are entertaining.

      I sense the frustration and embarrassment in them that you obviously feel, gopherit, but please realize that you deserve every minute of it.

      Think of all of this as the healing process.

      Now if there was only something that could be done with that overinflated ego...

      I will keep trying to work on it.

      In the meantime, remember....don't miss a word on this KKD chat board...your integrity and reputation are at stake.

      You certainly wouldn't want those priceless qualities of yours to suffer any more than they already have.

    • You mentioned

      -- The NoCal scandal
      -- The McAleer looting

      -- The $9 million director
      -- The franchise ownership conflicts
      -- The going-on $1 billion insider bailouts
      -- Book cooking

      ...Yes I did.

      But you said nothing of market saturation?

      ... How forgetful of me. Later.

      And Goofus seems not concerned about any of this?

      ... go figure.

    • aeye/x_5_9/no_fear_go/canannina/etc, please stop posting your BS long enough to answer five questions:

      1)Why do you post these constant attacks on practically everyone who posts here who is not one of your own aliases?

      2) Have you read "I Am Sam"?

      3) Do you consider yourself the Erin Brokovich of the donut business out to save the lives and money of all those who would (gasp!) even consider shorting (or have shorted) KKD stock?

      4) Are you foolish enough to think your annoying little diatribes will actually convince someone on this board to cover their KKD short?

      5) Or do you just like to read your posts on a computer screen?

    • Digenetic:

      From your most recent conversation with your alter ego:

      "You think KKD is heading into choppy waters.

      As it were."

      Don't you say this essentially every post, or at least every other post?


      Where are those class action lawsuits you promised us??

      Must you and I be the only ones responding to your posts?

      More importantly, please stop talking with your alter ego long enough to answer five questions:

      1)Why do you post these first person chicken little tiring epistles?
