RE: Cajun Joe's
I am the Founder of Cajun Joe's and opened my first Restaurant in the Mission Hill section of Boston in 1985. We opened four more in Boston over the next two years franchising two of them. We met Fred DeLuca of Sunway at an International Franchise Associtaion meeting in 1988 and by April 1989 became part of the Subway franchise company. we opened more than 400 stores nationwide and guess what, it didn't work. Kinda gave Subway a bit of a black eye, stores that were still operating werte released from their franchise agreements. Some stores continued as Cajun Joe's, some stores closed, some changed concepts and others were sold and lots became Chinese restaurants. I guess the size of the Restaurants and equiptment packages lent themselves well to that type of operation.
For those that still have a Cajun Joe's open I am jealous, I REALLY miss my chicken!!!
