In the Boardroom of Dough Inc., the #1 manufacturer of donuts, éclairs, and sundry fattening pastries, the executive team grapples with the company’s future. Little do they know, the State Governor, his trusty campaign advisor, and his aide de camp, are meeting with a concerned pediatric oncologist, self-appointed head of her newly formed Healthy Children Action Committee. Together, they plan a new government-led assault to save weight-challenged kids from high calorie foods. Worse, Dough’s major competitor is launching Big Nuts, donuts with 784 calories.
Dough Inc. responds to both challenges with imitation, outsourcing, automation, bribery, and outright theft. Only Jeremy McTavish, head of New Product Development, has a solution.
