Monday predictions

McDONALD’S will buy Subway. If subway continues its trajectory of being the ubiquitous discount sandwich place, and McDONALD’S continues to try and reinvent itself as an American quick-service mainstay, I think the marriage is inevitable.

UHaul will go bankrupt. Possibly be bought by home depot (or another national retailer).  Their model is a 1980s hidden-fee wasteland. I’m sure their liability continues to drive costs up.   But if their $35 refueling service charge and 4.60/gal fuel price is any indication, they haven’t turned a profit off of just renting trucks in a long time.
