A Chat with Kristen Hartman, President of Cinnabon & Carvel

This was a fun stop in Atlanta because of two reasons. First we recorded this short yet value packed Podcast with Kristen Hartman, the President of Cinnabon and Carvel. Secondly, we had a huge platter of special treats waiting for us in the kitchen and we really enjoyed that before hitting the road again. Kristen was gracious with her time and it is obvious that she truly loves both franchising and her brands.

In this episode we dove in to topics ranging from how the "healthy lifestyles" trend is actually helping her business (hint, everyone needs a treat) to how these brands are using technology to gain an edge. The other thing I loved discussing was the topic of why marketing leaders make great brand presidents.
