    Franchise Interviews Meets with Hala Moddelmog of Arbys

    in Business

    We are excited to meet with Arby's President, Hala Moddelmog, to discuss the company's refranchising success and significant investment into the brand at a time of great economic uncertainty. Some of the topics we will discuss with Hala are the following: • This past fall, Arby's introduced a new line of turkey roasters. Hala will discuss why Arby's found it important to expand its menu beyond its signature roast beef offerings. • Arby's is now testing a new restaurant design/layout in select markets. Hala will discuss what Arby's hopes to achieve with a new look and feel. • Arby's recently made several changes to its leadership team. Hala will provide rundown of these changes. • How have all these big changes paid off for the brand? • In order to overcome obstacles to growth, particularly the ongoing credit crunch, restaurant executives are focusing their efforts on attracting multi-unit and multi-brand operators with strong cash flow to not only open new units, but purchase established corporate stores to help revitalize and remodel stagnant locations. Has Arby's been a part of this "refranchising" trend?
    While many companies and business owners are slashing their operating budgets, investments, and jobs in light of the looming "fiscal cliff," some are optimistic about the future and continue to invest extensive resources.

    Managing Madrid Podcast 6: Granada and Liverpool and Calma

    in Soccer

    Gabe and Josh are back in a slightly shortened Managing Madrid Podcast. Real Madrid are undergoing a fantastic stretch--12 consecutive games, with most of them playing out as blowouts. Cristiano Ronaldo has been on fire, Benzema has been playing the best ball of his life, and Isco and James are both clicking. The guys reflect a little bit on Madrid's form, contrasting the team with Guardiola's Barcelona. Finally, they conclude with a conversation about Gareth Bale.

    in Business

    As-Salaam-Alaikum / God's Peace be on You!
    The federal governnment is back in "business", as a temporary agreement was reached, to allow it to function.
    Much finger-pointing, but it seems that Obama "won", as his vaunted Obamacare, lives to see more days.
    At a more closer view, we have our outstanding brothers, Yusuf Muwwakkil and Farid Shakir, as they go about the business of building and preserving an eco-structure, complete with farming, housing and other supporting edifices; a plan for success, a plan for the future of those who will long succeed us - if and when they qualify to run a "government".
    Join us tomorrow at 6:30 AM, on Critical Discourse.
    Invite your friends, neighbors and family members, and most importantly, invite yourselves and participate.
