No challenge has ever been unconquerable for CEO and founder of The Bakery Companies, Cordia Harrington. With a little bit of sass, some built-in charisma, and a lot of hard work, Harrington rose from the owner and operator of a McDonald’s in Effingham, Illinois to creating a company that oversees baking for international brands like McDonald’s, KFC, Trader Joes, and more.
Even in the face of divorce, single motherhood, and long exhausting nights of work, Harrington followed her gut instincts to forge a path to success. Now, the affectionately nicknamed “Bun Lady” boasts over $100 million in revenue, but Harrington still remains enchanted by the world of entrepreneurship.
In this episode of Circle Back, we hear about her challenges in building the future she dreamed up — and the trust in herself needed to get there.
