Kleinberger, who was the youngest CEO to appear on the show, will now enlist a trusted team member to go undercover at a Menchie’s location. With the assistance of his disguised employee, Kleinberger will checkup on one of his stores to see how they are doing after the past “Undercover Boss” episode which aired several months ago. Together, Kleinberger and his incognito employee will see if the location has kept up with Menchie’s standards by continuing to exude the smiley culture.
