Three Missouri Western students are set up for success thanks to a business opportunity at the university.
Allison Humphrey, Triston Jones and Leslie Oberg have been selected to operate and eventually own their own Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Stores.
Each graduated from the Steve L. Craig School of Business at Western and went through a semester-long course to prepare for this opportunity.

"I'll be able to become a business owner at 22 years old which would have never happened on my own. I have an entire team of support behind me, the Missouri Western State University, Craig School of Business, and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Everyone is behind us so we really have the support necessary to succeed," says Leslie Oberg, one winner.

The company hasn't determined where their stores will be located yet.
