I moved from Indiana to California in 1959.
And witnessing the utter explosion, (in the sixties and seventies), of zillions of huge NEW hamburger franchises, all based on some tiny variation of the standard hamburger, I always wondered why there were no WCs out here, seeing as they are so unique, (with the small size--individual square box -slathered in onions, and steamed bun [slider] factor and all)...
and all I ever heard was: "They made some deal with some other hamburger company wherein THEY would only be east cf the Mississippi and THIS OTHER COMPANY would stay west of the Mississippi. "
Never heard the name of this other company.
So, today, for the first time, it occurred to me to google the answer,
which brought me here.
--So when i saw the previous post explaining about the White TOWERS court case
i thought i had the answer
but these later posts seem to suggest that that might not be the correct version of the story
since White TOWERS aren't just west, aqpparently
(personally, i have never HEARD of White TOWER)
so i STILL don't GET it:
seems like they'd be SO successful out west, there must be SOME legal arrangement or reason stopping them from coming out here.
They'd sell TRILLIONS!
