New to the stock. Thinking of eventually going long. Traveling extensively between the Mississippi and Redwoods, I've sensed a leveling of interest in eating out. The regulars still come in to socialize, the young still want their coffee, families still want a break. The zip is gone.
Starbucks, McD., and many local eateries are toying with wireless hotspotting. I've heard college kids and young workers pick their place based on where to hook up. Intel has now gone public with it's wireless push. Standardization, ease of use is here.
Panera has good coffee, very good food, and a good image. In my brief reading so far, I can find no mention of them embracing this new trend.
Can anyone help?
As to the previous poster, May everyone be happy with their investing.
In view of the recent back and forth, I'm sure that Hotpanera thinks that the wireless network operates at the high wavelength on the radio wave spectrum, possibly going higher, while Freshbread thinks that it POSSIBLY operates at a low wavelength. Wall Street Jim thinks that there are no wavelengths -- everything is flat. Value on the other hand looks at the current wavelength as a buying opportunity.
Seriously, I want to commend all of the recent posters (other than unoww) on some informative and thoughtful pieces.
