The benefits of mentorship in QSR franchising, with Sam Rothschild of Slim Chickens and Louis Cambeletta of Liberty University
Play • 30 min

The QSR industry is one that we’ve covered in extensive detail throughout the duration of this podcast, and we’ll no doubt continue to do well into 2022 as restaurants recover from a global pandemic and evolve in order to suit an entirely new generation of consumer. Two individuals who know this all too well are Sam Rothschild, COO of Slim Chickens, and Louis Cambeletta, vice president of auxiliary services at Liberty University.  

The pair initially met back in 2000 when working at Tony Roma’s, and have since developed a strong, collaborative partnership while working at their respective organizations. Mentorship is undoubtedly a valuable and often underrated pillar of growth, so we wanted to speak with Sam and Louis about how their mutual support and guidance has elevated their respective roles.  

With both guests also being deeply entrenched in the food and beverage industry, we also use this opportunity to talk trends, analysis, and predictions for this unstoppable category in 2022. Will this be a year of unforeseen growth, or will brands still need to ensure they remain vigilant against change and challenges? Tune in to find out.
