In this issue, you’ll dip your toes into both of those ponds — and get a little bit of an education, to boot.

Have you noticed that some well-known chain restaurants on Appleway in Coeur d’Alene have gone belly-up? It’s true.

And for the entrepreneurial at heart, NIBJ columnist Sholeh Patrick wraps up her two-part series on franchising, explaining how to get your show on the road.

There’s more, of course, but it wouldn’t be much fun if we gave it all away in this introduction.
