Ya the best deal at Del Taco is to get their Black Friday / cyber Monday Buy $100GC get 8 free combos.  Every year by Feb I despise Del Taco because I’ve eaten so much of it with my GC and 8 combos haha.

Retail Therapy app is good. We use the 20% El Pollo Loco one.

I forgot about the Jersey Mike’s one and was just there recently. :(

RIP. Kids in the future eating their vegan ice cream will never realize what a magical experience Farrell's was.

IMO the issue with Farrell's is that it's not a place where you would frequently go with your family.  It's like once in a while treat for kids.  For smaller ice cream shops with lower overhead they can survive, but Ferrell's is large and costly to run.

Places like Cracker Barrel's serve breakfast lunch and dinner, and when they slowly spread to CA they were careful to choose inexpensive inland locations and provide menus online in both English and Spanish.  Farrell's on the other hand went for fairly expensive locations like downtown Brea and Knotts Berry Farm.


p.s. Vegan, non-dairy, and low-carb ice cream quality has improved greatly over the past decade.

If you had the capital and time, what kind of place would you open?

Bobaschnitzel.
Where east meets west.
In Baker Ranch.
