How do you take a wildly successful franchise and make it fail?

Let the government run it.

Hospital-based Tim Hortons coffee shop in Newfoundland makes half a million less per year than a privately owned store. Reportedly most franchises post profits of $250,000 (wow!); this shop lost $260K last year, thanks to (unionized) "health care" employees getting paid $28 an hour to pour coffee. You just can't make this up.

 Newfoundland taxpayer dollars hard at work!
