    Stephen Cooper's strategy

    Many people (like me) have also believed the same hypothesis, but don't bother sometimes responding to people who just disagree about yes, you nailed it on the head in your post - the remaining question is merely about the time frames...

    Oh and also, I think Cooper needs to ensure that KKD corporate has control of a majority of the stores first prior to BK in order to control the Krispy Kreme brand, as I've mentioned. I don't know where that critical mass is, but it's obvious from franchisee comments that KKD corporate is trying to push the biggest ones into BK first. Conversly I think there are franchisees that are playing a similar game.

    Again I ask..."WHO (which lender consortium) HAS THE DEEPEST POCKETS?!?!"

    If I recall correctly, I think I posted this question LONG before your hypothesis post...
