Ed and Barbara were in the restaurant business their entire lives, working as managers, district managers, and owners of a full-service restaurant and convenience store, before launching the enormously successful chain of restaurants across the western United States called Biscuits Café. Ed’s career and marriage were at an impasse when Ed was invited to a CMN meeting with Ed Cole. He began devoting his time and energy to listening to CMN teachings and studying the Bible. The story of the turn-around in his and Barbara’s marriage was chronicled in Edwin Louis Cole’s book Real Man. Together with their grown children, through the fits and starts of the restaurant business, Ed and Barbara have emerged with stunning success in their family, their business, and their spiritual walk.
