Quiz: On manifestos, hot dogs, and activist investors
It’s time for another Friday restaurant quiz. If you remained abreast of the important restaurant issues this week, you’ll undoubtedly do well. If not, you can start kissing that director-level position adios. As always, right choices link directly to the answer.
