    Bobe: dividend, split, and week end pizza

    Dividend increases are good.
    A split makes good news too.
    Since bobe is in the pork business, why not vertically grow to offer week end pizza? I brought that idea years ago making an early 6:30 am phone call to ask to speak to Dan Evans, who was there in his office to take my call!... with a pizza on his desk, asking himself the same question. He said reconfiguring bobe service would be difficult.
    I had observed that after 8 pm, younger people needed a place to do fun dining; and, often on Fri-Sun groups seek to meet at a fun place, monthly, if not weekly! Maybe we need bobe to review the entry of pizzas! In my life, I helped to site three bobe locations, including opening the market in WDC, where I attended school. I always saw bobe as a real estate business=in the boom days, with the stores as a liability (joke) but not really: large tracks of land were bought, sold off, and bobe's costs "very low" to control the area. Where is the team, when real estate is so low?
    Also the small breakfast locations, what happened to that great idea?
    Any word on the continued buy back program of bobe? Return comment to:
