We're not sure what that headline means but point is: Famima! is quietly taking over the universe. Just today, we drove east down Colorado Boulevard from Old Town Pasadena and counted two of the 711-like gourmet food stores within just a few miles of each other; the newest one a block from the Laemmle Theatre (621 East Colorado Blvd., 626.304.0500) surely a boon to the art movie set. And we got word from a reader that one just opened in Culver City (10704 Venice Blvd., 310.836.5600).
The race is heating up:
Famima!: 9 stores
Pinkberry: 6 LA stores, plus one in New York
McDonald's: 1,236,578 gazillion*
