The entrepreneurial mind never ceases to amaze me. You'd have thought by now that people would have run out of new ideas right?
And we all know that there is nothing new under the sun, but a spin on an old favourite is making a good deal of money for an American self taught chef.
Macaroni cheese who'd have thunk it?
Robert Dunn opened a mac' & cheese bar in affluent Monroe, Connecticut, 112 km outside Manhattan, last July and now gets through a 1000 pounds of macaroni a week.
He has just sold a franchise for 10 locations in Texas, plans to open 3 more in Connecticut and 5 in California.
You have to admire the guts of people like him that will take risks, have faith and gives things a go.
So now I'm wondering if a jelly and ice cream bar would be a success in London? Just throwing it out there :)
