Ned turns off the Simpsons' freezer when he discovers Homer has been using his electric to power it so to stop the meat contained in it going bad Marge makes dozens of sandwiches, which go down well at school. As a result she opens her sandwich shop as part of the Mother Hubbard franchise and it does well, especially when the family comes in to help after a staff walk-out. However Cletus and his family open another shop over the road, taking away the Simpsons' customers. A scam is required to persuade the Mother Hubbard company to give Marge back the money she invested and the family rallies round to provide it.
