    Pros

    Fun people. The flow of business helps time go by fast. Wide range of products available for purchase. Good training program for upper management.

    Cons

    Depends on if you are in a franchise or not. If you are it is sometimes difficult to share product between stores, you generally have to be on good terms with the other location. Always changing the menu to add new products or running test programs in specific areas.
