Zingerman's Founder at SOCENT
Keynote speaker Paul Saginaw, co-founder of Zingerman’s Delicatessen, will share how this 35 year old business has grown from a small deli to a multi-enterprise operation with a creamery, bake house, coffee house, candy "manufactory" and mail-order concept. When Paul opened Zingerman's with partner Ari Weinzweig in 1982, he did so believing that business can be a powerful tool for positive social change. Zingerman’s today is a community of ten unique businesses, linked by the Zingerman’s brand and guiding principles, and incubated under Zingerman’s entrepreneurial umbrella. From his grandfather Paul learned the thrill of risk-taking in business and the accompanying privileges and responsibilities. He relishes the potential good that can be accomplished with 21 partners and over 725 employed individuals. He feels joyful for the opportunity to mentor others in business, offer financial literacy to all Zingerman’s staff, and continue to raise wages. In his mind success has come despite his limited natural talent and ability because he believes that the only real limits are those of vision.
