It seems that anyone with a bankroll and a big idea is flocking to the fast casual scene nowadays. And why not? Why go in on a fast food franchise and take orders when you can be your own Colonel, Ray Kroc, or Steve Ells rolled up into one? In the last month alone I've discovered a place that dolls up hot potatoes, a joint that hawks donut-shaped burgers, and a counter with a kitchen that offers just four types of taquitos. Starting your own fast casual place means you get to make--and break--all the rules. After scouring Fastcasual.com and getting up to speed on what excites customers, I've come up with a few ideas that are just waiting to find a home. Potential investors, you know where to find me.
