There really is a Sara Lee. She was 8 years old when Charlie Lubin, a bakery entrepreneur, decided to name his new line of cheesecakes after his daughter, Sara Lee. His company was purchased in 1956 by Consolidated Foods, where Mr. Lubin continued to serve as a senior executive for many years.
In 1985, Consolidated Foods changed its name to Sara Lee Corporation. Although Sara Lee has never had a management role at the corporation, she has appeared in some television advertisements for our bakery products. In her words, her father told her the product “had to be perfect because he was naming it after me”.
Today Sara Lee is a philanthropist who spends most of her time supporting the education and advancement of women and girls in science.
