Two Pieces in Today’s Financial Post

My first Franchise Focus piece for The Financial Post! I’m very happy with how this one worked out. It was a little more technical, involved a little more research, and I had to do some follow ups, but in the end it was a success. I’m looking forward to doing my next franchise piece.

This one is about Menchie’s frozen yogurt and how quickly they’re spreading across Canada. What’s their secret? If you ever happen across one, pop in and sample their wares. Yummy self serve yogurt with dozens of flavours and toppings charged by weight.  It’s gooood.

And my third entrepreneur article for FP. This one is about a lunch delivery service called Tiffinday. They deliver fresh cooked Indian food direct to people’s offices in reusable metal containers which they pick up the next day. But there’s a problem. They’ve reached the maximum output with doing just lunch and want to expand into a sit down restaurant with a dinner menu. Given their tight budget though, the search is proving difficult.

    Chris,

    hard to track down your email!

    I found the story on Seema Pabari of interest having gone through similar experiences years ago. I couldn’t locate contact information aside from the Udupi Palace.

    My suggestion for cheap premises at this time would be to locate a film catering truck -preferably the type used out west in Vancouver. Park in the back of the Udupi (or other kind establishment) and hook up your power and water. Stoves are gas that can be filled by SuperSave – they deliver!

    If three of us could put out 12 course meals for 400 people in that little tube within 6 hours – I’m sure Ms. Pabari would find it practical and economical; without the tangle of an expensive lease.

    Isn’t street food happening in Toronto?

    cheers
