The show will air at 9 p.m. July 23, Anne Beiler said this morning on her blog. “How I Made My Millions” explores “how everyday people have taken ordinary ideas and turned them into extraordinary businesses,” according to CNBC.
Beiler previously announced she would appear Aug. 26. on the ABC show “Secret Millionaire.”
More than 1,200 Auntie Anne’s operate in more than 20 countries, according to the company website. Atlanta-based Roark Capital Group acquired the company in 2010.
