YesterdayÂ wrote my second post about Sardar Biglari, the man who took over the Steak ‘n Shake restaurant chain and has since decided to change the company name to Biglari Holdings (BH) to signal his intention to branch out into other areas, a la Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK). As you may know, Berkshire Hathaway probably has the most simple corporate web site of any publicly traded company. Simple text links to the documents investors would want to see and that is about it, along with a plug or two for some of his companies.
Here is a condensed screenshot of Berkshire Hathaway’s home page as of Monday:
Since the Steak ‘n Shake corporate name was changed recently, I decided to see if Biglari had published his own web site yet. Sure enough, here is a screenshot of the Biglari Holdings home page:
Needless to say, I was pretty stunned to see a design so obviously similar and simplified. But maybe the history of Biglari Holdings up to this point should have resulted in me being a lot less surprised. At any rate, it is pretty clear what to expect from this company going forward. Biglari definitely wants to follow in Warren Buffett’s footsteps.
