Jane and Michael Stern talk about what happens when Roadfood favorites begin cloning themselves into mini-chains, during their visit this weekend on The Splendid Table. While it would be possible to kick and moan over the trend, they chose to focus on the successes, discussing the expansions of Pepe's Pizzeria (see the Roadfood.com review of the New Haven, CT original), Doe's Eat Place (see the Roadfood.com review of the Greenville, MS original), and Five Guys. The Sterns hypothesize on what makes these three in particular work so well. You can hear the show on your local public radio station. The Sterns' discussion with host Lynne Rossetto Kasper is also available online, as is Lynne's whole show.
