And Marshall says he has received about 1,500 applications for franchises. How well does Broadway Joe's expect to do? "I'll let you know in five years." says Marshall. Echoing Joe Namath. he- adds, "You have to think you're best. If you don't you might as well quit." PERSONALITY What if Joe Namath did quit? Wouldn't his publicity value be diminished? Wouldn't he fail to attract big crowds at openings of Broadwav Joe's outlets? "We feel very strongly that when he's through playing football he'll still be a personality. Marshall says.
