Domino's Pizza Presents Small Talk Broadcast Which Promises to Deliver Big Insights into Today's Small Business Challenges

DETROIT, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Business executive, local entrepreneur, educator and small business expert Mark S. Lee is launching a new Small Talk broadcast on Sunday mornings at 7 a.m. on CBS Detroit radio's, WXYT AM1270, beginning June 8, 2014. The show will broadcast on air, online (cbsdetroit.com) and via podcasts.

Domino's Pizza unveils new logo. Will be seen on all new stores and those undergoing major renovations.

Small Talk with Mark S. Lee, presented by Ann-Arbor based Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), will showcase the secrets behind today's successful start-ups and small business ventures, with a particular focus on Detroit-based and small businesses throughout Michigan.   The show will feature tips from business experts and entrepreneurs who offer practical tips and resources focused on addressing business challenges, next-level growth, sustainability and market trends.

According to  a September, 2013, Bloomberg report, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months.   With this in mind, Lee's   broadcast promises to deliver knowledge, insights and best practices of business owners who've been able to overcome various obstacles and achieve sustainability as well as growth over time.

"Regardless how large or small, every business needs to deliver bottom line results," states Mark. S. Lee, a Detroit native and President & CEO of the LEE Group, LLC.   "Small Talk with Mark S. Lee will provide CBS Detroit's WXYT 1270 listeners with a pathway to profitability, providing proven steps to ensure business growth and stability, as advice from experts who have overcome obstacles and gotten back on track following business failures."

"We're happy to be on the ground floor and help launch this new radio program," said Tim McIntyre, vice president of communications for Domino's Pizza. "Domino's is a brand filled with entrepreneurs. Nearly 90 percent of our independent franchise owners began their careers as delivery drivers or in another in-store position, so a program like this designed to help entrepreneurs in Michigan is something we're happy to support."

U.S. Bureau of Labor research indicates that entrepreneurs and small businesses led the way in creating new jobs as the U.S. pulled out of the 2009-2011 recession, accounting for 67 percent of the net new jobs compared to larger firms (>500 employees).  

With more entrepreneurial ventures poised for growth  in Michigan, the program is poised to provide listeners with the information they need to help them take their  business to the next level.
