Yeah, I thought that too... but then I did a Google search and found out that Vegetarian Times named Missoula one of the 13 most veg-friendly small towns. http://www.findarticles.com/cf_dls/m...le.jhtml?term=



Still seems a bit weird...

I guess they figure if it can survive there, it can survive anywhere...

It's quite an expensive franchise!!!! I wonder how many will go for it. It seems to be quite a high risk one as well.

Actually is is very inexpensive as franchises go. The franchise fee alone for a Subway is more than $100,000!



Yes, it is risky, but it will be all about advertising & getting people to try it. The people who developed Goodburger's really know what they are doing & the taste is like nothing else you have ever had - any brand of frozen veggie burger will never be the same after you have had a Mr. Goodburger's.



Mr. Goodburger's is poised to change the quick serve restaurant business - it can be good AND healthy!

I'm glad to see them, and I hope they fly, but I personally wouldn't invest in one or the company as a whole. Seems to be a bit of a niche market still.



'Course, if I stumble on to one, and really like it, then my opinion may change.

I've been dying to make a trip to Honolulu ever since this was first posted!! If someone wanted to start one over here in Hilo, I'd be your first and happiest customer!!

Tame, you weren't the only one who was surprised that the first on the mainland was in Montana. That was my first thought!



Oh man, how exciting is this though? The chance that there could be a successful vegetarian chain of restaurants? This is one chain I'd be all about supporting!

There is a write up on Mr. Goodburger in the newest VegNews. Someone, open one up in Atlanta!

I met a well-off real estate investor yesterday... We both agree that we need one in L.A., but neither of us wants to take the time to actually run it!
