Lucas, Thanks for the invite. All is well here. Congrats on MD #8. Now that you have Bucky all set, grab the future wife and come work for me here! HA! Look forward to your next visit. Missed you at Marley's (the father) Superbowl Party in the Rathskellar. Lots of food and of course the BIG SCREEN!
The first 5 years for Chipotle was slow, I think that they only had 5 or 6 locations. After that with the McDonalds financing they grew like crazy......... probably about 50 -60 stores a year. I will get in touch for sure I would love to try MAD Greens!
I started with Chipotle when they had 5 stores. It was amazing watching all of the growth. When I left we had 500 restaurants. I will check you out for sure. Is Mad Greens just in Denver? Are you in a growth mode?
I notice you have over 100 restaurants. Are you planning to expand into the UK?
Contact me please if you are or visit my web site www.dunleavydrive.co.uk where I have just completing the development of 5 stand alone restuarant units. One was prelet to Frankie and Benny's and one to an Americsn Gourmet Drive thru coffee take away.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
