The poor earnings for Famous Dave can be partially blamed on the less income and the increased FICA tax on consumers. With less income, people do not go out nearly as much as they use to. And what future growth is Famous Daves talking about? Not for some time will there be any growth. Look around and see what I am saying. Just read the Star/Tribune and you will see it too.
