Some dozen years ago, I remember having a conversation with Amit Pamecha, the founder of FranConnect, who back then, just happened to be my boss. It was a conversation over dinner, about how back then, we didn’t seem to run into too many MBA’s in the franchising world. Well, fast forward to today and I think its safe to say that trend has changed. We hear from guests all the time here on Franchise Today, who have MBAs to their credit. But, it’s not everyday that those MBAs were earned at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, with an emphasis in Marketing, Operations & Entrepreneurship. Well that all changes this week, as my guest, Wetzels Pretzels CEO Jennifer Schuler, checks that box for us and is here to tell us all about that, and more.
Are you a boomer who wants to live a life that’s fulfilling, financially stable and with enough money to provide opportunities for happiness and comfort? If so… you’ll want to be sure to take a listen to what our guest, Howard Yaruss, has to say.
Howard is an economist, professor, attorney, businessman, and activist who enjoys explaining complex issues in a clear, interesting and easily accessible way. To these ends, he’s just come out with a book that is both enlightening and certainly timely. The name of the book is Understandable Economics and Howard joins us today to share all about it.

We are meeting with CEO & Founder of Celebree School, Richie Huffman. Since 1994, Celebree Schools has been caring for and positively impacting the lives of children in Maryland and Delaware. Today, their day care history is taking a big next step to supporting children and their parents in more locations and in more mid-Atlantic states.
Every business has a story
Richie was a straight D student in high school and knew college was unlikely, so he shifted his attention on business. It was through various grueling jobs in bakeries, real estate, and retail that he learned the value of hard work and its and payoff – many of the early lessons learned, he applies as a leader today. He was inspired to pursue entrepreneurship by his mother, “Betty,” who launched a preschool center that expanded into three locations under the name White Marsh Child Care, where Richie would sweep the floors up at the end of the day. Fast forward ten years later, he opened his first preschool in 1994 at the ripe age of 26 – this was the start of what would become Celebree School. Over the course of more than two decades, Richie grew Celebree from a single location into Maryland’s largest privately held chain of child care centers that is now franchising nationwide. Find out what happens next by listening to the podcast. In part two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
