From the Digital Box Set: This week, we discuss what happens when founders are the face of a company. No one can relay the passion of a company like the founder - but while they may be the heart and soul of a company, should they be the face? We'll explore what happened to Kentucky Fried Chicken after the Colonel died, how Dave Thomas built Wendy's to be the #3 burger company, how Martha Stewart's company coped when their founder went to jail and the curious story of how Men's Wearhouse fired their own founder - after he had been the face of the company for over 30 years. This is an archived episode that aired originally on May 5, 2014.
