Off-Topic - sort of about franchising

Here I am looking over FranchiseLawBlog when I see Wendy's Franchisees Missing Dave. Frankly, so I have. Reading I see that others also have a similar complaint that I have:

Complaints include the introduction of a summery fruit salad in the depth of winter, the current ad campaign featuring men wearing pigtailed Wendy fright wigs and an autocratic decision-making style.
In (a probably vain) attempt to keep this post on topic, we might be seeing a problem common to businesses when the originator passes from the scene. Just what was the succession planning at Wendy's? What planning have you done with your business?

Meanwhile, I really think the Wendy's advertisements are about the worse out.
