Comment of the Day: What Makes a Chain a Chain?



Today's comment of the day comes from a post about Christy's Hamburgers.

Slightly off topic, but I noticed you call Christy's a chain. This is something I've been tossing around in my head lately: what constitutes a chain? There is so much anti-chain vitriol out there, it kind of seems like a scarlet letter to call a place a chain. There are two Ted Drewes, is that a chain? There are five or six locations of PI, is that a chain? Are local places like Lion's Choice or Fortel's or Rich and Charlie's chains? I really don't know.

Let us know what you think constitutes a chain in the comments.
