Quotes of the Week

Since tomorrow is July the 4th, we are posting an abbreviated list of highlighted quotes from the Wake Forest Schools of Business faculty. But these are very insightful and extremely relevant to business in North Carolina. The focus is a pair of our best-known corporate entities: Duke Energy and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.


“This is the new replacement for financial services, and absolutely it will continue to grow. ... The merged company will invest in new technology that will be very good for you. This is a real opportunity for people who have skills. But for unskilled workers, you’re not in good shape on this one."
 ~ Dan Fogel, professor, telling WSOC how Duke Energy's
purchase of Progress Energy will transform Charlotte

"Krispy Kreme's history also has significant ties to North Carolina, and so it makes sense to create a larger splash in one of the state's, and the Southeast's, best and most exciting markets."

~ Kenny Herbst, professor of marketing, telling the Charlotte Observer how the doughnut company can capitalize on growth in Charlotte
