*If you haven't heard of Giraffas, you probably will in the near future. The Miami-based Giraffas began as a small burger joint in Brazil when an engineering student (Carlos Guerra) bought it 30 years ago. He kept the name and expanded it into one of the country's largest burger chains. Three U.S. locations opened in Miami in 2011, more are under construction, and they’re franchising beginning this year. The menu focuses on burgers, priced from $7.90 for a Grilled Picanha Single up to $11.90 for the Giraffăo Filét Burger (with cheese, bacon and egg), but they also offer pasta, fish and more. Don't think they'll survive in the U.S. market against such burger giants as McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's? Think again - they are used to competing against the “big three,” as they have been competing in Brazil for years. I'm keeping my eye on this franchise.
It's the little stuff....
