Walsh Institute – Movi Campus Hosts White Castle to the White House.


Jamie Richardson, G4 Vice President of Corporate Relations, White Castle, will share the story of America's first hamburger chain. The 4th generation business has been cultivating Cravers (ultimate fans) for its square, little burgers since 1921. Now 10,000 employees strong and represented in 12 states, White Castle has become an American icon and includes a Cravers Hall of Fame that has screened over 8000 applicants!

The study of family business has evolved into an entire field in the last generation. And rightly so since family firms are the primary drivers of our economy and significantly shape our society. Family Enterprise USA (FEUSA) is the nation's only nonprofit group advocating for a broad range of public policy issues affecting the success of family enterprises.

Ann Kinkade, President of FEUSA will discuss the importance of its work as the nation's most credible voice and trusted advocate of family firms and how their message is driven by the stories of America's family firms. Jamie will share how White Castle upholds its values and maintains its culture in the context of government affairs, public relations and community engagement and why they have chosen to support the advocacy work of Family Enterprise USA.

Ann and Jamie will also share results from a recent survey of family businesses and want to hear your voice!

Who Should Attend:

Family business owners from the region are encouraged to attend. This event is centered on providing information to assist owners of family businesses of all sizes. This event is designed to address the main concerns of family businesses and how external legislative and social policies affect their success. Attending Ann Kinkade and Jamie Richardson's discussion, White Castle to the White House is a must if you have any similar concerns and want to hear of their solutions through the united advocacy of FEUSA.
