Qdoba:

Qdoba Mexican Grill is a food chain that specializes in Mexican cuisine.

In 2006, the company was involved in a lawsuit in which Panera Bread attempted to invoke a clause in Panera's contract with the White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, to stop the opening of a Qdoba Mexican Grill. The clause provided that Panera would be the only sandwich shop in the shopping center. Panera argued that burritos and other tortilla-based foods were, in fact, sandwiches. Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke ruled against Panera, concluding, "A sandwich is not commonly understood to include burritos, tacos and quesadillas, which are typically made with a single tortilla and stuffed with a choice filling of meat, rice, and beans."

Now it's Chipotle competitor Z-Teca Mexican Grill's turn. Denver's slightly smaller burrito chain, with 12 restaurants, has attracted two major investment groups infusing enough capital into the business for it to open 25 new company-owned stores by the end of the year. Western Growth Capital LLC, a private firm in Denver, specializes in investing in emerging companies in the Rocky Mountain region, said Don Anderson, one of five partners in Western Growth. The other new Z-Teca investors are three heavyweights in the fast-food industry. They are: Martin Hart, a board member for Papa John's America, the pizza franchise company; Jack Laughery, former CEO of Hardee's; and Dan Carney, the founder of Pizza Hut.
