This Entrepreneur Went from Fast Food to Health Food

020915 r thomas grill

Fast food isn’t often associated with healthy eating. But Richard Thomas was able to take his experience running various fast food eateries and turn it into a successful health food restaurant.

Thomas opened the R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Atlanta in 1985. Before that, he had owned multiple Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut units. And he even helped found the Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits chain, which expanded into 28 locations across multiple states before being sold for $12 million in 1982.

But Thomas wasn’t done with the restaurant business yet.

Flying Drones with the Dnipro Battalion: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 93)

Prior to the ceasefire agreement reached in Minsk on Thursday, the winter offensive launched by the Russian backed separatists of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) had claimed the lives of at least 220 soldiers and civilians. As ceasefire talks were being discussed, there were reports of the DNR reinforcing their positions around the Ukrainian-controlled city of Mariupol. The capture of Mariupol is vital to the DNR’s dreams of achieving statehood, with its port providing a link to the outside world. In this dispatch, VICE News travels to the village of Chermalyk, located 20 miles north of Mariupol, where Ukrainian forces are preparing the defense of the city and using volunteer-made drones to gather intelligence on separatist positions.

A Sex Worker Tells Her Tale (Extra Scene from ‘Sex Slaves of Bangladesh’)

Bangladesh is one of the few Muslim nations where prostitution is legal, and the country’s largest brothel is called Daulatdia, where more than 1,500 women and girls sell sex to thousands of men every day. Daulatdia is infamous for drug abuse and underage prostitution, and many of its sex workers are victims of sexual slavery who were trafficked into the area and sold to a pimp or a madam. They are forced to work off the fee that was paid for them, a debt that takes years to clear because they receive as little as a dollar for sex. VICE News visited the notorious Bangladeshi brothel — where human trafficking, underage prostitution, and drugs are commonplace — and met the traffickers and the trafficked, as well as the clientele. In this extra scene, VICE News correspondent Tania Rashid hears a personal account of a sex worker who came to Bangladesh’s largest brothel with her two children, after leaving her abusive husband.

We all know that for most people who start businesses it is either necessary or extremely helpful to have access to financing.
