When chains go from sizzle to fizzle

Restaurant Rewind: Dutch Bros’ stock price dropped 37% in a day last week. It’s far from the only public restaurant chain to go from an investor darling to a source of Wall Street consternation in one trading day. This week’s edition looks at two other examples.

The doughnut chain said that its attention-getting doughnuts, such as one stuffed with a Twix bar, and more locations can generate sales without major price hikes.

All but shut down during the pandemic, New York City’s tourist hub is now reenergized. And restaurants want a piece of the action.

Marketing Bites: Current events are offering some good fodder for discounts, Baskin-Robbins debuts a rebrand and more marketing news of the week.

The doughnut chain is planning to open what it calls “dark shops” for delivery orders to the U.S. and Mexico this year after testing the idea in the U.K.

Heart-shaped pizzas, doughnuts and trays; Hard Rock's Super Bowl and Valentine’s specials; football themes at BWW, Subway and Moe’s.
