Personal Quote
Hire for attitude, train for skill!
I was born in Athens GA and grew up somewhere between there and Miami. My father played for the Dolphins in the early 70's so we did a little moving around.
Graduated from Valdosta State University (South GA) in August '92 then promptly moved to Aspen CO for a quick 7 year stay where I bartended, waited tables, and managed a couple of restaurants.
I started with Zaxby's Franchising in 2002 when we had just over 100 stores. Now we are over 420 and I must say it has been quite a ride. I'm very proud to be a part of such great company and to have played a part in developing such a strong brand.
Years in the Industry
6 years with Zaxby's. 15 in restaurant industry from fine dining in Aspen CO to fast casual

Hi Jake! Sorry it has taken a few days to get back- I was out of the office on different projects most of the week last week! I really hope that there is an opportunity to work with you all. From the first time I met Daisy (about a year ago) and then meeting you, Richard and others it has been really clear that you all would embrace a message like this- you get it for sure! It would be a joy. Hope it happens! And btw, I have told no less than 3 of my design clients and a few coaching clients about the session you presented. I really loved the practicality of it for ops and you presented it in such a humorous and passionate way- they should contract you to market it to hospitality industry clients!

Let me know if you'd like to chat. You can reach me on my office line at 770.427.4237 or cell 678.449.6945.
