founding partner & CEO of Zingerman’s gourmet food companies
Ari Weinzweig was working as a dishwasher after earning a Russian history degree. He took a $20,000 bank loan and created a business that went from a neighborhood deli into an institution with more than 500,000 visitors a year, 700 employees and $60 million in annual sales.
When Inc. Magazine called Zingerman’s “the coolest small company in America”, it said that the “grand plan” the Zingerman’s founding partners came up with for the future of their business was “far better than anything a management-consulting firm could have devised for them.”
The way we all think about and create the future of our organizations massively impacts our ability to realize that future.
Ari will lead us in an immersive vision workshop where we learn the tools that enabled Ari to lead Zingerman’s growth from its humble beginnings to 10 different businesses.
