PZZA falls a little short on net margins but may look 
good in the future.  The trend over the last 3 yrs.
has been increasing margins.  If anyone can suggest
other companies they would like PZZA compared against
I will do the work and publish.  Be patient though, I
have a 9 day old daughter in the house.
