Focus Brands Inc. is making preliminary plans to go public in 2019 for a valuation of over $1 billion, and while you haven’t heard of them, you have definitely shoved too much of their food in your mouth at some desolate rest stop on the interstate. Focus is basically The Avengers but for stuff you eat on the Jersey Turnpike, composed of the likes of Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Jamba Juice. You know, food you would never normally eat, because you’re a grown adult for god’s sake, but it’s 8:30 p.m. and you’re not going to make it to the good rest stops in Maryland for at least another hour, so it’s time to do something you’re going to regret by the time you hit Arlington. That is a billion dollar company in America.
Holy hell, it’s like Walt Hickey’s been in my car.
