"In his 81 years, Bob Moore has built a mini empire with his health food company, Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods
. During his recent birthday celebration, he told his dedicated employees that he's passing the torch and ownership of his multimillion dollar business to them
." "[H]is 209 employees now own the place
and its 400 offerings of stone-ground flours, cereals and bread mixes."
he's gotten countless buy-out offers over the years, but he couldn't envision selling the business to a stranger....'I don't think there's anybody worthy to run this company but the people who built it. I have employees with me right now that have been with me for 30 years. They just were committed to staying with me now and they're going to own the company.'"
