Rogers Report November 2019: Small Business Saturday


November 30th is Small Business Saturday
and since Bowling Green State University is located in one of America’s best
college towns I was thinking wouldn’t it be a great
way to showcase the many wonderful businesses we have here in Bowling Green

doing here today this is our chocolate chip and our most famous most popular
cookie and we will use this and put an Oreo inside you create our inception
cookies well how many batches of cookies do you
make a day probably about five and how many cookies are in the badge oh one
thirty inch to 140 and then five days a week and seven years so think of that
seven years 52 weeks in a year five days a hundred and thirty a day say that
would be 1 million one hundred and eighty three thousand I think right
