The San Diego-based dating service "It's Just Lunch" and its 80 franchises worldwide sell themselves as a "specialized dating service for busy professionals." But the company does not fulfill its promise of a love connection. Clients pay $1,500 for up to 14 dates - "usually for lunch or cocktails after work" - that are supposed to be chosen by the company based on specific criteria provided by the clients.
