    I don't understand the business model of going political. Seems to me I would rather not piss of any potential consumers.

    The principle is millennials and younger buy differently. Gen x/y generally buy with a quality or economic value, boomers and older need, price, quality... The kids based more on corporate ethos...so corporations are pushing hard on unconscious bias training and themes to their workforce...which likely was the intent of the training.

    There may also be an element of appeal to the broader liberal mindset too... Rewind a year, to the corporate response to BLM...

    I guess I would want EVERYONE buying my product klan, blm, n korea, hell even canadians. Seems like taking a stand one way or another is likely to cause a rift. Potential customer loss. I could be wrong again though in my logic.

    Every one that has opened here has closed within a year. I went there for lunch once, didn't get it, nothing special.

    If they were really woke, they would give the company to a minority group. Maybe Colon K would come be the new spokesperson.
