The standard thing for franchise restaurants (how did we get onto that
topic?!) is to require franchisees to open a large number of new
restaurants in their territory within a fairly short period of time.
Panera, for example, requires franchisees to open 15 stores in 5
years.  One of the first stores in this area has been open for about
fifteen years (the were in the old Framingham Mall before it was
de-malled), but they just exploded a few years ago as the company
demanded that the franchisee expand his operations.

ObRadio: I noticed they've been buying a lot of radio lately.
