The line at Panera Bread snakes out the door. There are no open tables at Chipotle Mexican Grill. Customers are pulling on the doors trying to get into Quiznos Sub, and it hasn't opened yet. The Hunt Valley shopping spot that some locals used to call "Death Valley Mall" because of its dark, empty storefronts is hopping. Even though construction of Hunt Valley Towne Centre is months away from completion, nearby workers and eager shoppers are dodging the orange cones and weaving around the piles of concrete blocks to patronize the businesses that are open.

This site, anchored by a Los Angeles cooking-school graduate who calls himself Mr. Breakfast, offers recipes, restaurant reviews and articles such as "300 Ways to Enjoy Toast."

As chairman and chief executive of Minneapolis-based Caribou Coffee, Michael J. Coles is tackling a difficult challenge - trying to defeat a persistent 2-year-old Internet rumor that the chain of coffee shops is linked to Islamic terrorists. "Things on the Internet don't go away," said Coles, who explained that the rumor is hurting sales at stores in communities with Jewish populations and could threaten Caribou Coffee Company Inc.'s expansion plans. Not dealing effectively with rumors can alienate customers and hurt the bottom line.

SO FAR, the signs are subtle: Mama Ilardo's Pizza has arrived. So has a Charley's Steakery, a cheesesteak place, and a Caribou Coffee. But these are only interim replacements. It will take a year or so before travelers at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will see the big changes that are coming. Last month, BAA USA took over responsibility for the concessions at BWI. The change is a bigger deal than most airport regulars know. For decades, BWI has run its shops through a single contractor.
