....then who are the likely candidates for fill-in-that-blank, and why? Gleaning this forum across the months for reasonable, or desired, or obvious names, we've had McDonald's, Starbucks, Tim Horton's, In-n-Out, and some others. A question I have is that, to a great extent, all those names and locations are franchises. Corporate HQ does have some say, but very, very little, in what its franchisees can do with their locations. I am not familiar with how such a three-way interaction could come to pass, but I don't think I'm going out on a very long limb by suggesting that any number of franchisees could feel themselves burdened unduly if they were tapped to host a SC, or be prejudiced if they weren't so chosen.
