There's a fourth company in possible bid range: The Jan Companies, a local Burger King and Krispy Kreme 'franchise group'. They're obviously- if not admittedly - mulling a bid for the same reason Dunkin's is: keeping the Wendy's-owned Tim Horton's out. Bess Eatons would not be convertible to Krispy Kremes. I don;t know what a company like that would even do witht he brand.
Tim Horton's would close six Bess Eaton'sif they won the bid. I'll bet of the 'three in Connecticut', one would be the EB locale, and another Waterford in Route 1.
Hmmm. And according to the Providence Journal, the RI stores are: "Narragansett Pier Village; at 1237 Kingstown Road, South Kingstown; and at 240 Post Road, Westerly.".
In non-donut news, I now have a hand-me-down 'paintball marker' - that's 'paintball gun' without using the word 'gun' - from my Dad. Picked up a mask , CO2 and other implements at Super-Walmart, gettign ready to test it tomorrow. Well, later today.
