The BAD BAD Apples

The mission of the BAD BAD Apples is to provide individuals with the Belief, Action and Determination to Build And Develop their  attitude for success. The BAD BAD Apples is a joint venture between Frank Kitchen Enterprises and SIGMA C Enterprises.


While working at Community Colleges in Cleveland, Ohio, Frank Kitchen and Rodger Campbell formed a friendship while assisting thousands of students and professionals on the road to personal and professional success. Challenged by same students and professionals to share their message, Frank and Rodger left they're college careers and formed the BAD BAD Apples. After many long, caffeine supported nights, they developed the popular keynote “Are you a B.A.D.A.P.P.L.E?” and the BAD BAD Apples Philosophy on Life and Leadership. What began as a challenge, turned into an adventure that took them from college professionals to full-time speakers. Faster than they could have imagined, they went from writing notes on a napkin to performing in front of audiences large and small in the United States and Canada.

"Frank was my keynote speaker during my State Fall Leadership Conference in 2012. The Bad Bad Apple concept 
was a fantastic message which impacted the audience (High School Students throughout the state of Arizona) tremendously. Frank and his partner were humorous and serious when presenting their message catching the audience’s attention for the duration of the presentation. Not only did they present for me, but they took it upon themselves to work with the staff at the US Airways Center (who was conducting the sound system and providing information to manage the Marque and video boards during the General Session). They truly helped to make the event spectacular." - Kym Contreras-Spitali, Former AZ FCCLA Executive Director
