Franchise brand Buffalo Wings & Rings VP & CFO Sandy Ritter was featured in an article highlighting women leadership in the restaurant sector. She elaborated on her advice for women trying to make their way into the field.
"I think persistence in anything worth fighting for is the key. Women choose business just like they choose medicine or engineering or staying at home to raise a family. You decide what it is that you want or are called to do — what you want to fight for — and then you do it," said Ritter to Fast Casual.com. "You don't take 'no' for an answer. You don't cave in or fold at the first sign of trouble. You work hard to meet the challenges that come up and eliminate the hurdles. You do this one hurdle at a time and by doing that, you keep getting better. Behind every successful person, male or female, is a person who has persisted to make themselves better each day and has overcome the obstacles and challenges that come up along the way."
