Slathering mayonnaise and spreading fresh roasted turkey on a handmade sub can be a mundane task, but for Augustin Nemet it’s a symbol of ownership and purpose.
“Currently we’re running the store, just me and my wife,” he said. “It’s a true mom and pop.”
“If you’re there you can oversee what’s going on, see what’s running, interact with customers and see that the culture of the company is one that’s positive,” said Sandra Kauanui, director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship at Florida Gulf Coast University.
It’s often better to be a hands-on business, but it depends on how the owner manages his or her control and how many employees the company is responsible for, she said.
