I wouldn't be surprised..  but I would be worried about the retail component... probably close those down.

Lost Red Lobster to PFG a few years back. Imagine that had to hurt quite a few DCs, so curious if the rumors have any legs to them.

They won Tim Horton's from Sysco a year or two ago. Heard they can't keep up with that and some stores had to shut down a couple days waiting for product.
