May 5, 2014

Students in business professor Phil Bessler's "Business Plan Development" class, which is required for the Entrepreneurship minor and major, recently met and talked with Al "Bubba" Baker to learn about his transition from a NFL football star to food entrepreneur. Baker shared his motivation and trial and error along the way.

Bessler, who has advised Baker through BW's Business Clinic, also got a gratitude shout-out from Baker in a recent Plain Dealer follow-up article on the big bounce his boneless ribs product received from a successful appearance on the TV show "Shark Tank."
