A fiscal and social conservative, Cain was born in Memphis but raised in Atlanta. He is a graduate of Morehouse College where he double majored in mathematics and physics. Cain earned a master’s degree at Purdue University.

He served in the U.S. Navy and worked for Coca-Cola, Pillsbury, and Burger King, before becoming CEO Godfather’s Pizza. Cain is the author of several books including CEO of Self: You’re in Charge, Leadership Is Common Sense, and They Think You're Stupid: Why Democrats Lost Your Vote and What Republicans Must Do to Keep It.
