Which he may have reached. But he wanted more. He loves his parents and knows they love him but he wanted to be independent. Together they figured out that with his love of pretzels, he could start his own business. Which he did. In 6 months he has grown to where he is looking to find a commercial kitchen and hire a few people. He wants to give people like himself a chance to succeed also.
