Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Peruvian businessmen Arnold Wu and his brother, owners of Pardo’s Chicken, opened their first foreign branch of the restaurant chain in 2002 – in relatively nearby Santiago, Chile.
Diners sitting at outdoor tables among the date palms would occasionally hear the sounds of rockets flying overhead, often aimed at the Green Zone on the other side of the Tigris River.
Burger King offers it, but only in Canada.
Husband-and-wife restaurateurs Paris Smeraldo and Meg Lipke, owners of Northeast Kingdom in the up-and-coming Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, are bringing new meaning to the terms farm-to-table and nose-tail.
Homeroom specializes in macaroni and cheese made with artisanal cheeses from local cheesemakers, but we’re much more than a mac and cheese shop.
A small but growing number of chains—such as Cousins Submarines Inc., Tasti D-Lite LLC and Toppers Pizza Inc.—are following in the tire tracks of those local food-truck businesses popping up on city streets around the U.S.

The six-course dinner menu often features French dishes from executive chef Nicolas Boutin and is priced at $320 a person.
It is something every restaurateur and hotel owner knows: good reviews boost takings while terrible ones can close you down.
Urban restaurateurs with plenty of left over milk crates and not enough vegetables have discovered a novel solution: Savvy urban restaurateurs from New York to California have recently discovered that growing their own produce, whether on a rooftop farm or a neighboring site, is easier than trekking to local farmer’s markets or buying from suppliers—and it provides lots of publicity.
