Great to see The Center for Family Business at CSUF’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics hold its third-annual induction ceremony on March 21 to recognise some great family firms.
Honoring local family-owned establishments with awards for their commitment to improving their communities and staying true to their founder’s mission over the generations. Sponsored by the center and City National Bank, the event featured speaker Lynsi Snyder, president of Irvine-based In-N-Out Burger, who was interviewed by Mark Steines, co-host of “Home & Family” on the Hallmark Channel, on her experience as the third generation leading the iconic food brand. The center and City National Bank presented a $5,000 check to Snyder’s Foundation, Slave 2 Nothing, which seeks to end human trafficking. The Center for Family Business Hall of Fame honors are awarded through peer nomination. This year’s Excellence in Community award, presented to a business that prioritizes benefiting and developing the local community, was presented to Orange County-based hot dog fast food chain Wienerschnitzel.
