Q: Name a popular restaurant chain in two words. Its letters can be rearranged to spell some things to eat and some things to drink. Both are plural words. What things are these, and what's the chain?

If the couple things were "pizza, pizza", that would definitely give it away.
A: LITTLE CAESARS --> LATTES + ECLAIRS
