Alumni’s receive a sweet deal for their hard work.

In a press release this week three Missouri Western alumni were selected to own their own Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory or Aspen Leaf Yogurt stores. According to public relations for MWSU the three individuals are Erica Ricker ’09, Erik Garcia ’11 and Cassandra Schuster ’07 all alumni from the Craig School of Business.

The winners were interviewed and took a course this fall at Western for a senior-level applied entrepreneurship. There were five finalists in the course according to the press release. The class had to create business plans for their store and presented their plans to an interview panel made up of representatives of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

Full story coming soon.
