So if the Ole Restaurant Group no longer owns them who does?

According to Business First, they got a "new investor" in the fall, but it wasn't clear that Ole was dropping out. The story was pretty fuzzy ...

On the other hand, Ole's web page no longer shows M&BB as a property, only Artesano, Guacamole and Taco Luchador.

It certainly seems that all their energy recently is going into expanding Taco Luchador into a c- c- chain, so maybe they quietly shed M&BB without making a lot of noise about it?

That was my assumption when I noticed it last month, Robin. Shed it to narrow their focus (and quite possibly raise cash for the TL expansion efforts).

When I called MBB I was told they were no longer part of the Ole Group and would no longer accept their gift cards.
