THIS IS WHY CHAINS ARE GREAT

Every so often someone posts on the chains board for presumably the sole purpose of bashing chains and telling everyone how they only eat at local non-chain establishments.

DH and I just got back from five days in Maine. We had some wonderful food at local non-chain establishments. However, we also had really bad hot chocolate at two different local places, and stale cinnamon rolls at a local bakery that came recommended. THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME AT STARBUCKS. In fact, when we killed some time at a mall in Bangor before our flight back, the first thing I did was hit the Starbucks kiosk to get their hot chocolate, which is the best hot chocolate I've ever had anywhere.

Even when you're enjoying local regional cuisine on a trip, it's nice when there are chains nearby in case you're having a bout of bad luck with the local stuff. You usually know what you're getting with a chain, even if the quality varies a little bit by location.

That's why chains are great.
