On this week's show, we meet fathers and sons who are working together to make business work across generations. We begin with Baumer Foods, the third-generation company that makes Crystal Hot Sauce. Al Jr. and his son "Pepper" explain how in their family business, there are no shortcuts to the top.

Then, we visit father-son duo Carlos and Will Avelar at their family business, Mawi Tortilleria in Metairie. Will was a rising star in the culinary world when he and his father decided to join forces to provide fresh, authentic corn tortillas to the New Orleans community.
