A Deeper Dive: RB Editor-at-Large Peter Romeo joins me on the podcast to talk about some of the more colorful events in the restaurant industry’s history.

Subway appears to be on the verge of completing the third-largest chain acquisition by value in history. Here are a look at the 10 biggest, at least until that one is complete.

The activist investor, which once won every seat on the Darden Restaurants' board, now owns nearly 10% of the Outback Steakhouse parent.

Paul Carbone joins the parent of Panera Bread, Caribou Coffee and Einstein Bros. as it continues preparations for a possible IPO.

After its June IPO, the fast-casual chain came out of the gate strong, with second-quarter traffic up more than 10%.

Mancino's 30-year employee ran the con for 4 years, embezzling $100,000 before being found out.

The company said it will look to acquire similar concepts and convert them to Twin Peaks as it aims to reach 200 locations in the next several years.

The deal will help the 17-unit Southern California fast-casual concept accelerate growth.
