Disruption

Business Cycle

disruption-2

The two-decade time span is “kind of the natural cycle for our restaurants,” – Crain’s Detroit Business This past week has seen announcements that businesses are closing (JC Penney’s – 130 locations, Bloomin’ Brands – 43 locations). 
In any economy, there are business cycles that cause a business to perform poorly. There are also disruptions that impact on business success.
In the case of JC Penney and other retailers….it’s on-line retailers (Amazon) that are creating the disruption. For Bloomin’ Brands…..probably the natural cycle for the restaurant business.
Whatever the economy…..some businesses are long-term and others only last for several years.
