McDonald’s (MCD) latest non-edible creation is a hoodie, timed to coincide with the launch of its new crispy chicken sandwiches. Dunkin’ (DNKN) launched a wedding “kit” of matrimonial products, and Chipotle (CMG) has tapped the universe of TikTok stars for its newest T-shirt launch.

Her husband, she said, works in an H-E-B warehouse, loading trucks. “They do a lot for people here in Texas,” Ms. Loera said. “They are good to their employees, too — good raises, good health care. They have their own doctors, too. Their own clinics here in town.”

Brock Sol said he was drawn to the store by the prices. “I’m homeless so it’s tough to find things cheap

SALT LAKE CITY — Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Savaiinaea family in Provo decided to share some of their favorite family and cultural comfort food with their friends and neighbors.

Under the name SaWrap, Lola and Nathan Savaiinaea began offering lumpias from their home kitchen. Lumpias are similar to an egg roll, but can be served fried or unfried, sweet or savory and are a favorite in Filipino culture.

But while Lola Savaiinaea said they have a food handler’s permits and a business license, such “microkitchen” operations aren’t currently covered by Utah law. However much trust their friends and neighbors
