Although Trump trumpeted Puzder’s “extensive record fighting for workers,” employees of the fast-food chain described an environment where cost-cutting pressure made workplace violations the norm. Workers at CKE claimed they were denied breaks, exposed to unsafe work conditions and harassment, made to prepare meals while they were ill, and forced to work off the clock to meet the chain’s strict budget goals, according to a scathing report released by Democratic Sens.

As the most successful franchiser in Singapore, Bread Talk is surely becoming a threat for most food retailers. Bread Talk not only rented most of the retail space along Orchard Road, but now they are doing delivery to offices and apartments nearby. Bread Talk outlets usually consist of a huge see-through kitchen, and bread trays ready for pick-up by customers, with three or four cashiers at front, to speed up the queue. Rumor has it that Bread Talk sold more than 35,000 breads each day in just one of their retail outlets.
