Rap Snacks Launches App To Teach Users The Stock Market

Published

on

Rap Snacks is looking to help its customers — and people who’ve never even tasted its potato chips — learn about the stock market. The company has launched a new app designed to teach users about stocks and investments.

The Stock Boss Up app is a free digital stock market simulation that lets users test the waters of investing without using their own capital. The app allows users to keep track of the market in real-time while investing up to $1 million of simulated money in publicly traded companies.

Rap Snacks, which was founded by CEO James Lindsay in 1994, and its philanthropic branch The Boss Up Foundation created the app to bolster financial literacy. Stock Boss Up’s launch was expedited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to a dramatic rise in unemployment in the United States.

Users can sign up for Stock Boss Up here. The app is available on the Apple Store and Google Play. For more information about how Stock Boss Up works, view the details here.

The work Johnson’s company is doing is through the Small Business Administration PPP program and is in partnership with MBE Capital Partners.

“We knew why the money was gone and couldn’t trickle down to small businesses, especially small minority businesses, because they didn’t have those great relationships with the banks,” Johnson told the Wall Street Journal. “So this was easy for us to understand.

“This is, when you think about it, life and death for so many business owners. They have nowhere else to turn.”

Chuck E Cheeses Changes Its Name to Attract More Take Out Business

Published

on

Things are changing during this international pandemic, and so is the name of a popular childhood hangout. Chuck E. Cheese is now doing business as Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings — with an entirely redesigned and distinctly mouse-less logo.

The change was first reported in Food & Wine in April, when a woman from Philadelphia shared how she felt duped by the CEC Entertainment brand when she ordered pizza from Pasqually’s using GrubHub, with the false impression that she was ordering from a local business.

In a statement to Food & Wine, the company confirmed the association and clarified that this would not be the end for Chuck.
