Stop the Corporate Insanity

Omaha, Corporate Sellouts?
Congratulations Omaha, we are almost the biggest restaurant sellouts in the nation.  We hold 9 of the 10 consumer picks for top restaurant chains in our area. The National Restaurant News Consumer Picks special report, rates top restaurant chains in the limited-service and full-service segments based on customer preferences. As the largest segment in the restaurant industry, casual-dining restaurants are often the go-to pick for consumers looking for a night away from their own kitchen, a place to celebrate with family and friends or a familiar location to have a quiet meal. Of the top ten chains, restaurant conglomerate OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC own three of the top 10 top restaurant chains, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill and Outback Steakhouse.  Omaha, stop the insanity and shop local.
