Hello Friday.

Tots > Fries. Maybe it’s not new, but I’ve been noticing a recent tot movement at some of my favorite spots. Jackalope Jacks – tot me. Burger & Co – tot me. Bad Daddy’s – tot me. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good french fry, but I’ve become a side-toter and it’s hard for me to see myself going back. Anyways.

Today’s Stat: $14.3 million. 2014 total comp of Lowe’s CEO Robert Niblock.
