Reminder: Anyone who owns something, can sell it. This is especially true when it comes to franchised brands.
Take Qdoba as a great example of this. Qdoba is a USA-Canada based franchise that offers Mexican cuisine in a casual setting. It’s also a brand that isn’t doing very well right now and its fate is being weighed by Qdoba’s parent company: Jack in the Box. Qdoba has been owned by the parent company for 14 years.
