When did the word “robot” enter the English language? When did the famous Sears catalog finally bid us all adieu?

This Week in Business History just made a little bit of history of its own… this week! Scott Luton and Kelly Barner went LIVE to take a journey down memory lane, shining a light on some of the most significant leaders, companies, innovations – and even lessons learned – from the week of June 20-24.

They shared stories about:

• The iconic Jimmy Dean, musician, businessman, and - some might say – philosopher

• The birth of Pizza Hut, which spawned a challenge to list as many famous ‘huts’ as possible

• The backstory on Wheaties cereal and their innovating marketing techniques, including the iconic athlete features on their box and the first-ever jingle featured in a radio commercial
