In her newly released book, Dare to Serve: How to Drive Superior Results by Serving Others, we learn that when she took over at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc., the stock price had fallen to $13 a share. Popeyes stock price on March 1, 2017, closed at $79.01 a share, six times greater than when she began leading this major restaurant group. Through determining to lead the company in a new way, Cheryl is leading one of the greatest business turnarounds in recent American business history, recognized by numerous personalities and media, including the Wall Street Journal. In fact, on February 21, 2017, it was made public that the owner of Burger King, Restaurant Brands International, Inc., is purchasing Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. for $1.8 billion cash. You will be inspired by what she has to share.
