Local restos - which ones make more in-house vs. sourcing out ?

This may be a rhetorical Q as we may never find out the truth or statistics. But in a different thread where I brought up the local phenomenon of "McDim Sum" in lots of big and small Chinese restos throughout Metro V and cited these two reads:

That got me thinking about our backyard and how do the popular and well-reputed restos *might* (rhetorical) rank in terms of creating foods in-house vs. sourcing out.

        Am I missing something? I watched the video and it seems like it's just a video recipe to make the dough from scratch, with suggestions about making in bulk and freezing/refrigerating. Does GFS sell the beef etc pre-made or something? Just based on this video, it doesn't seem nefarious...
