Bread and Butter

What a Bunch of Bakers Taught Me About Business and Happiness


Bread and Butter is a book with three parts: First, it's the story of the birth of an extraordinarily successful kind of business called a "freedom franchise": Great Harvest Bread Co., which began as one bakery 25 years ago, is now a $60-million-a-year company with 140 stores in 40 states.

Vergiss nie den hohen Preis der Macht … Für die Macht über die Galaktische Allianz hat sich Jacen Solo mit all seinen Freunden und Verwandten entzweit. Doch er war bereit, alles aufzugeben, um der Galaxis Frieden zu bringen. Erst jetzt, da er allein ist, erkennt er, dass der Preis, den er gezahlt hat, weit höher ist als erwartet – und…

Second, it's the story of one employee's success – the author, Tom McMakin, who was looking for a job and found a lifestyle. McMakin's immersion into Great Harvest is a model for modern entrepreneurship and an inspiration in this age of failed dot-coms and dissatisfied young employees.

Third, McMakin uses GH's experience to provide advice for everyone from dreamers starting their own multi-million-dollar companies to small-business owners to someone who doesn't know what she wants to do. Things like: creating a "learning community" using email and an extranet; operating without loans, relying instead on profits for reinvesting in the company; GH's "40-hour" rule so no one works more than 40 hours a week; and more. Bread and Butter can help you discover how, instead of living your life in service to the business, you can create a business in service of your life.
