Hi Neil!

I like CMG a lot because it has many of the Tier 1 characteristics that I look for and I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it joined the Tier 1 portfolio at some point in the future:

I'm just a little more comfortable with Panera at this point in time from a valuation perspective and from a customer experience perspective (my family and I eat at Panera much more often than CMG).

I've said before that I tend to gravitate towards businesses whose products and services that I love:

... and with Panera being one of my family's favorite places to eat, I feel like a have a bit more of an edge when it comes to investing in PNRA than I do in CMG.

Fool on!
