Can the Secret Sauce That Built a $6 Billion Business Save Our Politics?

My view of a business leader, a political leader, a community leader is to discover today what’s going to matter to tomorrow, and making sure your organization is there when the future unfolds.

– Ron Shaich, founder of Au Bon Pain and Panera Bread

Based on business metrics alone, no one has been more successful in the food world than Ron Shaich, who built Panera to be the highest performing restaurant stock in the nation.  But the metric Ron pays the most attention to is personal: “Am I doing work that I respect?”   In this new episode of Add Passion and Stir, he is in conversation with Food Corps founder and CEO Curt Ellis who explains why “Food is the place where social justice and racial justice meet environmental sustainability and public health.”
