Session: The Power of Purpose
The world has a list of what you need to be successful. Anne had none of those things. But what Anne did have–a great product, amazing people, & a purpose bigger than herself–became her recipe for success. Out of those, purpose became the most important ingredient in her life.
In the “Power of Purpose”, Anne reveals the inner workings of growing up Amish to building the world’s largest pretzel franchise, all while coping with devastating personal heartbreak & despair. She shares about how the discovery of the three things she had, helped to overcome the three vital business elements she didn’t have, & how purpose can give you overcoming power, a position of influence, & people that will be loyal to the cause.
Founder of Pik Rite, Business Owner
In 1982, Elvin and a friend built the first Pik Rite tomato harvester. This project was largely driven by the fact that he was involved in hand-harvest of tomatoes. Pik Rite was incorporated in July 1986.
At age 26, Elvin married Molly Mullen, who has been a key influence on the person he is today. Together they have 3 children.
Elvin has always had a passion for people. He has worked very hard to make Pik Rite a good work environment where employees are valued and have the opportunity to grow, both financially and personally. His strong faith in Christ and involvement to make the community a better place are noteworthy.
