When we're traveling and need to grab a bite to eat, have you ever noticed we often pick a national franchised restaurant? If we're not familiar with the area or are in a hurry, we'll pop into one of these nationally or internationally-branded restaurants for one big reason: familiarity. We know what we're going to get.
Meet these Multi-Restaurateurs in this month's FRONT. No reservations required.
Even if we're free-spirited and spontaneous and eager to try new things... sometimes, simple consistency goes a long way.
In our region, there are locally owned and operated restaurants that seem similar to national franchises, because they're in all our most popular routes, the brand is instantly recognized, and the food, service, and experience is usually consistent across the group. They continue to capture their own loyal customer base.
Three of the largest such groups in FRONT region are Macado's, Country Cookin', and Famous Anthony's. They dot the map all over our part of Virginia, with 41 locations between them.
