NRN editors discuss the State of the Union, Domino’s delivery driver shortage and Wendy’s breakfast, and try the Hot Honey sandwich

Plus, hear from Subway CEO John Chidsey


This week on the Extra Serving podcast, a production of Nation’s Restaurant News’ Last Bite Network, NRN editors Holly Petre, Sam Oches, Leigh Anne Zinsmeister and Ron Ruggless spoke about what this week’s State of the Union meant for the restaurant industry.

Additionally, the team discussed Domino’s recent earnings, including its driver shortage and the downturn in sales. They talked about what it could mean for the future of delivery at the quick-service brand and whether it could mean a future of third-party delivery for the notoriously anti-third-party-delivery brand.

The team also discussed Wendy’s breakfast and its market increase while Petre and Zinsmeister ate the new Hot Honey sandwiches from the quick-service chain. The newest daypart from the chain, which launched a week before the pandemic, has now become 8% of the company’s sales.

Plus, hear an interview with Subway CEO John Chidsey on the future of franchising at this Top 10 chain.
