Undercover Boss: Donatos, Jane Grote.

Why the Boss wants to go undercover:

Donatos was founded 50 years ago by Jane’s father, Jim Grote, with one philosophy in mind, “To make the best pizza and to treat others the way I would like to be treated.” Headquartered in Columbus, OH, Donatos pizza operates more than 180 restaurants in six states with an annual revenue of $170 million. The company was sold to McDonalds in 1999 but was bought back by Jane and her father in 2003 when they realized that McDonalds was going to sell the pizza chain. Jane firmly believes in the family values that her father founded the company on over 50 years ago and she wants to head out to the frontlines to make sure that their values are being upheld.
