Founder and Former Chairman
TCBY Enterprises, Inc.
Little Rock, Arkansas


Frank D. Hickingbotham rode the crest of good-health awareness when he founded TCBY Enterprises in 1981. Through his leadership, a new market segment for frozen yogurt was created as the company grew to the world's largest manufacturer-franchiser with 3,000 locations in approximately 70 countries.

He built TCBY on great taste, a simple idea and a clean wholesome environment. Hickingbotham served as chairman and CEO until the company was sold in 2000, but continues today to lead a group of entrepreneurial enterprises.
