Season 4 of the Emmy-nominated series from executive producers Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman and Chris Carlson presents a whole new slew of top executives who exchange the corporate life for that of their own frontline employees where they gain invaluable knowledge of how management decisions have affected the workforce. They leave the experience motivated to take “extreme actions to make their businesses better.”
In episode 3 we meet a former Hooters girl, Kat Cole, who has risen through the ranks of the restaurant business and has been, for the past two years, president of Cinnabon, Inc., a familiar shopping mall food court fixture offering its iconic cinnamon rolls and other baked goods, owned by the Atlanta, Georgia-based Focus Brands Inc. Cole worked a variety of jobs in locations around the country while undercover ranging from coffee host to bakery cashier to manager. In a post-filming interview she spoke of her overall experience and what stands out for her:
“I was most moved by how young and energetic and sweet and great our employees are. I knew it, because I’m in the bakeries all the time. But [I was] working side-by-side with them and hearing their stories of how they are trying to pay for school or trying to raise their kids and just being reminded of their day-to-day life. Remembering what that was like for me was incredibly powerful.”
