This Secretive Billionaire Makes The Cheese For Pizza Hut, Domino's And Papa John's

quote [ On the manufacturing side, Kielsmeier cut down the cheese's aging period from 14 days to just four hours, which multiplied the company's production capabilities while cutting costs significantly.

"I would tell people,'Lester is the man that made me rich,'" Leprino says. Notably, though, Leprino never gave Kielsmeier any equity. While Leprino got rich, Kielsmeier ? who came to work every day right until his death at 95 in 2012 ? would have to content himself with being very well paid. ]

The author has a nice roster of similar contemplative articles.
