Flameout: A Cautionary Tale for Business
on June 1, 2011
Flameout is a careful and well-researched look at an almost long-term success story. During the rise of the fast food industry, Burger Chef was neck and neck with McDonald's and others in the race for market share. But the ever-changing, out-of-touch management and mandates on the store-owned and franchised locations ultimately led to its downfall. The message is control and originality matter. This is an interesting and nostalgic look at a Midwestern institution.
