Paul Lisnek stepped in for Steve Grzanich today, focusing on the needs for schools around the Illinois area with Matthew Kurtzman (CEO of Back 2 School Illinois). The two discussed how an overwhelming number of teachers are using their own money to provide resources for their students and Back 2 School has created a way to help fill those school supply needs. Wendy Grahan (Owner of Lakeview Market & Kitchen) then jumped in studio to explain how she is helping the restaurant industry by providing a shared space for bakers and chefs allowing them to rent the space when they need it, by the hour.
