Chain Gangs
Torchy's Tacos and Verts Kebap: two case studies in culinary expansion
Food Story  March 28, 2014, by Virginia B. Wood
"...So, what is it about Austin that makes it a good proving ground for homegrown restaurant chains? Do we take proprietary pride in eateries that come to life in our own backyard?
