According to the Retail Bakers of America, for the first time ever, ZingTrain is offering a very special edition of their 2-day seminar on Open Book Management - a session dedicated exclusively to bakeries.

Zingerman's is a nationally recognized community of food businesses in Ann Arbor, Michigan - famous for their food, customer service and unique approach to business. Among their 10 food businesses is Zingerman's Bakehouse, recently recognized as one of America's Iconic Bakeries by USA Today.

The Zingerman's Community of Businesses considers their practice of Open Book Management to be one of the keys to their unique success. Being Open Book and giving their employees the training and data they need to think and act like owners has not only contributed to Zingerman's financial bottom lines but also to unparalleled employee engagement. Besides practicing Open Book, Zingerman's also has a training business, ZingTrain, which teaches businesses all over the country about Open Book Management and how to implement it.

The seminar is taught by Amy Emberling, Managing Partner at Zingerman's Bakehouse and Ann Lofgren, ZingTrain's resident expert on Open Book Management. The 2-day training includes behind-the-scenes tours of Zingerman's Bakehouse, a chance to review a staff huddle and the Open Book lessons learned over years of implementing Open Book in a Bakery. And of course, delectable food, with 2 days of delectable Zingerman's breakfasts and lunches, and dinner at Zingerman's Roadhouse on July 20.
