My parents worked for a local PNW (Pacific Northwest) burger chain, Burgerville, for 25 years. They were both fired about ten years ago within 24 hours of each other during a big muckity-much shakeup.

For the last five years or so, my dad has owned a Pizza Schmizza franchise, also a local chain.

Today, my mom sent me this e-mail:

“Yesterday Figaro’s Pizza bought out Pizza Schmizza and
today Starbucks bought Burgerville.”


It’s a changing world, yo.
