Creating a Community of Businesses

Webinar · Ari Weinzweig and Maggie Bayless


I want to start a Community of Businesses! How does Zingerman’s do it?

Ari says he gets this question, or some version of it, once or twice a week. The Zingerman’s Community has 9 businesses? Why 9 businesses? What’s the partnership set up? What percentages are owned by whom? What about profit distribution? Who makes those decisions?

Join us for a tell-all conversation with Ari Weinzweig, co-founder of Zingerman’s and Maggie Bayless, ZingTrain founding partner and amongst Zingerman’s first employees. Ari will discuss the inner workings of the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses : Partnerships, Percentages, Profits, Payouts, Pricing & more … Maggie will bring her invaluable perspective that comes from being there from the very beginning and also what it means to be a partner in the Community.

And even better, they will answer any questions you might have about how we operate as a community, why we chose to operate that way and what the pros and cons of our model of business are.
