Out To Lunch: Airborne Chalkboard

Ashlee Arcenaux Jones and Peter Ricchiuti.

If you’ve been shopping lately you might have noticed the growing number of stores that have creative chalkboard signs outside on the sidewalk. You might have also noticed similar creative chalkboard menus in restaurants.

There’s a good chance those groovy looking hand lettered chalkboard signs were made by a company called SmallChalk, the brainchild of Ashlee Arcenaux Jones.

Peter's other lunch guest also writes signs. And tows them across the sky behind a plane. Neil Nadler is the owner of Air Reldan. Besides aerial advertising and charter flights, Air Reldan provide Mile High airborne services that you may find equally intriguing.

Peter Ricchiuti is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! His insight and humor have twice made him the top professor at Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business. After a successful career on Wall Street, Ricchiuti served for five years as Assistant State Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's $3 billion investment portfolio.
