Should I join this startup?

Waffle House is starting a new VC unit focused on tech they can use to revolutionize breakfast. Sounds like a chance to get on the ground floor of the next Uber. I want to do it but hate to loose the job security I have here at Huddle House. Any insights would be appreciated.

      Think bigger. Someone thought the phone was solved before Steve Jobs came along.

      I'm not sure what could be bigger than toast, choice of bacon or sausage, and two eggs any style. Maybe bacon *and* sausage?

      Plus a waffle, all for $7.99. It’s hard to find just a waffle for $7.99 in San Francisco.

    The majority of start ups fail. But the payoff if the succeed could be great. But it may take some time. So... if you’re up for ending up with nothing but getting great experience... go for it!

    What kind of security do you need? Do you have kids, mortgage or other responsibilities? It’s a personal question that no one but you could possibly answer any better.
