PRESIDENT, JOB CREATORS NETWORK

The chief executives of Job Creators Network were saddened to hear of the passing of S. Truett Cathy, founder of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain. The phenomenal success of his business, built on his very specific vision, was the definitive American success story. Mr. Cathy worked hard and stood strong in his convictions that took a mere idea to a popular business feeding millions of Americans healthy fast food at a reasonable price. He was the embodiment of the American Dream and his life is a lesson for all entrepreneurs. We send our condolences to his family.
