I don't know if it was covered in the book, but Horn & Hardart in the late 50's early 60's branched off into services such as catering to boardrooms on Wall Street. One of their accounts was Hanover Trust. The Wall Street crowd was very pleased with the quality of the operation. Also a first for H & H was "The Murray Hill" near Grand Central Station which was an upscale restaurant which also served alcoholic beverages. Patrons of the restaurant were usually unaware that the operation was a part of H & H. Just a bit of trivia to spread about!
