Zingerman's founder tells a tale of success and anarchy

18 secrets to starting a have led Zingerman's to success.
While structuring his advice around
'Great Business' what he jokingly refers to as 18 "secrets,"
By LEAH BURGIN
Daily FineArts Editor
without the beloved Zingerman's Delica-
tessen, there are at least two 'U' alumni

Businesses. Zingerman's Press
latest book - following, among others,
his "Guide to Better Bacon" and "Guide to
Good Eating" - is "Zingerman's Guide to
Great Leading, Part 1: A Lapsed Anarchist's
Approach to Building a Great Business."
Weinzweig ironically explains that one of
Zingerman's most important secrets is its
transparency. As he writes in the preface,
"We actually teach everything we know
about business, leadership, finance, ser-
vice and food to everyone who works here,
regardless of how old they are, how long
they've been on staff, or where they are on
the org chart."
And now Weinzweig has decided to
share this philosophy with a wider pub-
lie. Concise and casually toned, this first
installment mirrors Weinzweig's ambi-
tions. The 18 secrets make for 18 mini
essays that are sandwiched between
some Zingerman's history and stomach-
rumbling recipes for "classics" like potato
latkes, barbecue sauce and magic brownies
(no, not that kind of magic). These book-
ends turn "Buildinga Great Business" into
a guide that non-business-oriented folk
can still enjoy and learn from.
"I like that there are recipes in a busi-
ness book," Weinzweig said in an inter-
view with the Daily. "I picked one recipe
for each Zingerman's business. I tried to little different than what it would be like if
do stuff that wasn't really complex. I like it were put out by a mainstream publisher:
