Season Finale Sunday, May 29 at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS
“Undercover Boss” is a two-time Emmy Award-winning reality series that follows high-level executives as they slip anonymously into the rank-and-file of their own organizations. Each week, a different leader will sacrifice the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their operation.
In this past Sunday’s episode, Lowell Hawthorne, President and CEO of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill, goes undercover at the family-owned manufacturer, distributor and franchisor of Caribbean-inspired cuisine with 120 locations and products in 20,000 supermarkets, and discovers some of the chefs don’t have the company’s official recipes. This Jamaican-born boss, with an appetite for expanding his restaurant count, embraces his natural accent and dons faux dreadlocks in the hopes of blending in with the high volume of Jamaican employees in his workforce.
