Bayless battled HMS Host, which owned the foodservice con- cession at the airport, over everything from the supply chain to menu selection. "They wanted us to do a watered-down version of Frontera. We said we would only do this if we can make 'our' food using 'our' ingredients," he recounted. Bayless urged the c-store foodservice execs in the audience to focus on freshness. 24 oz 20 oz 16 oz 12 oz Why carry two SKUs when one will do?
