Michael J. Coles is one of Atlanta’s best-known business success stories. The poor kid from Buffalo, New York, who started working at the age of 11 to help support his family while still in school, went on to co-found the $100 million Great American Cookie Company (eventually renamed Great American Cookies), led a turnaround as CEO of Caribou Coffee and endowed a business school at Kennesaw State University.
