Fortune Hunters Easy Meals: The Ready-To-Eat Trend

With Canadians working longer hours than ever, many people are just too busy to cook but still want a home-cooked meal. Combine that with an increased focus on health and nutrition and you've got a hot market full of new companies offering options in the "ready-to-eat" category. From Dartmouth, NS, Greg and Paulette Dunn are running their meal assembly kitchen, Creating Dinners. While hubby Greg is a chef who designs the menus and runs the daily operations, wife Paulette is juggling a full plate — she's a mom, has a fulltime job, is taking her MBA and is the brains behind the family biz. She's got business savvy — but can she and Greg land a promotional column in a local paper to get more people into the shop? Plus there's the regular success segment, My First Million, that gets up close and personal with French fry king Wallace McCain. Find out how Wallace went from small potatoes to the world's largest producer of frozen fries.
