A veteran franchisor reflects on how entrepreneurship and franchising

are a rewarding combination.

By Eileen Huntington

I’ve celebrated two momentous events in the past year. The first was the 40th anniversary of co-founding Huntington Learning Center with my husband Ray in 1977.

In Georgia, a jury recently awarded $11 million to a woman involved in an automobile accident with a pizza delivery person, according to Courtroom View Network. The accident occurred at night, in the rain. In California, a court awarded an 87-year-old woman with several million dollars after an 18-year-old delivery person drifted into the wrong lane and into the path of her vehicle, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. The delivery driver suffered a medical condition behind the wheel and the jury felt the driver’s employer should have done more to ensure their driver could work safely with her condition.
