OK, that headline gives the appearance that I care that investors want to limit unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden. (I didn’t even know there were unlimited breadsticks.) I don’t but … honestly, the investors should be happy that some people consider their food Italian … and actually eat there. I, for one, don’t. But come on, how cheap can you be? I have to wonder where the investors dine for Italian food–Italy, perhaps? Or Babbo? Ai Fiori? Del Posto? Marea? I wonder if they ask for seconds on bread (and do they get cheap, soft breadsticks like the kind at Olive Garden or real Italian bread from one of the area bakeries). One of my arguments for mom and pops–your money goes into the hands of the person who cooks your food, not passive income for investors.
