He and his wife, Mim, built Herr Foods from a small one-kettle potato chip concern in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to one of the major snack food companies in the nation. Jim didn't even finish high school and had to borrow $1700 to begin the company. He worked hard and overcame many obstacles, including a devastating fire that threatened the lives of his young family and destroyed his business. Although he didn't start out to become an entrepreneur, his exemplary success certainly earned him the title. This publication is a an up-lifting book that proves good guys can finish on top.
