I totally agree. Yes, I’m serious. I held out until I knew what all the candidates had to offer. I made my decision when Perry put forth his Uproot and Overhaul Washington plan. I don’t want a new coat of paint, I want an overhaul. I want the whole package. I know Perry has a tough road ahead and his chances aren’t great, but I think he’s the best of the not-Romneys.
LoL! I am not sure if I would even pay $9.99 for one of his pizzas.
I looked at the menu.
Gluten free, Rice flour crust? Blech!
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm! That’s the way I would run a pizza chain. /s
BTW, we had our depts Thanksgiving spread today here in Tx.
We had smoked turkey, BBQ pulled pork, BBQ sliced brisket and a list of sides, deserts and snacks I could never recall.
And Guess what? We blessed the dinner with prayer.
I was sad that we had to ask in this crazy world if it would be OK, but No one objected, and we all bowed our heads and gave thanks.
That’s the way dinner is served in Tx.
Um you are aware that Cain left Godfather’s in 1996...
In Texas we operate by saying, Whoaa!! Thems a lot of chiles! Me and Chiles don't get along. Maybe I should not eat that.
Apparently In Herman's world we are one degree away from Obama's policy's.
No thanks. Keep your gluten free pizza world and sympathies.
Yup. And just where did he leave them?
Let’s have a vetting of the record.
What was their place in the pizza world when he left?
Jan Brewer on the Greta show now, and she admits that the Fed has all of her state policy snubbed in court.
Perry understands the landmines that brewer was about to walk into, that is why he said the Az law was not right for Tx.
It was not because he did not sympathize with what she was trying to do.
Actually Cain turned the business around and back into a growing and profitable enterprise.
But nice way to try and divert from the stupidity of trying to “blame” ( as if marketing a new product to customers not severed otherwise is a problem in business) Cain who has been gone for 15 years for a decision made recently...
You do Perry credit with your brilliance..
I was just pointing out that Godfathers Pizza is a place that tows the PC line and that since Cain was involved with them it must be his fault. /S
He stopped the bleeding, by cutting jobs and non profitable stores.
Godfathers has sunk even further as to market share.
What is Godfathers Market share.
What was it then and now?
You don’t see the Irony of his comments on a sissy pizza?
I thought that was the top of his resume.
Do you have any idea when was the last time Perry ran the 13th largest economy in the world?
An economy that is THRIVING?
Ooops! He is doing it NOW!
That is partly right. He made it profitable. He did so by cutting the franchises that were losing money. That is the easiest way to return to profitability, get rid of all the stores that are unprofitable.
Unfortunately, he was never able to grow the company. Growing is why companies sometimes have unprofitable outlets -- they are unprofitable until they earn market share. That is the hard task. Monoghan did it at Dominoes, starting with nothing and creating the 2nd largest pizza chain in the world.
Cain was a competent manager, who cut costs and cut unprofitable franchises, and then spent the rest of his time caretaking the business. It never increased in revenue, it didn't expand it's number of franchises, it didn't grow in market share.
Godfather's was once the number 3 pizza company. It fell on hard times, and when Cain was put in charge, it was number 5. Pillsbury put him in charge to turn it around, to make it back into the number 3 company. Instead, they ended up selling him the company. And when he stopped day-to-day control in 1996, Godfathers was the 8th-largest pizza company. He stayed on the board until the early 2000s -- when he left for good, Godfather's was the 11th largest pizza company.
And at the height of his prowess all he did was stop the bleeding and return a 1.5% profit margin.
