    Thoughts on KONA vs. GCFB

    Honda, I appreciate all of your points, but you are kidding yourself if you really think that GCFB is able to open stores more cheaply than KONA (or BJRI or CAKE or PFCB or any of the others for that matter).

    They are simply laying off those added costs to their developer (Dunham) and then paying them off slowly over time. In the end the GCFB model is MORE of a cash drain, not less.

    If the GCFB model was more profitable then would't all the best of breed casual dining companies pursue the same?
