For over 25 years, Kurtis Montgomery has been a leader in the restaurant industry. Leading with integrity is his style. Focus and commitment are his trademarks. Developing an impressive work ethic early on, Kurtis began his career as General Manager of a large, casual dining chain. It was here he honed his skills and created a leadership style that earned him not only extensive experience and insight, but the recognition as a leader in his field.

Moving on to new challenges, Thomas and King, a franchise of Applebee's, welcomed Kurtis into what would be a career catapulting role...a role that would help make a name for him in the world of casual dining. It was with Thomas & King that he moved through the leadership ranks into one of his greatest career achievements, Regional Vice President, overseeing over 40 Applebee's restaurants with annual sales exceeding $127 million. Growing his market from three to thirty restaurants, Kurtis set the standard for delivering service and value at every level, consistently coordinating, managing and developing his teams. Enhancing menu development for the entire franchise and brand, as well as overseeing new initiatives to operational excellence, Kurtis thrives at the intersection of responsible profit and superior Guest service, managing the business and the people. Known for achieving the highest average sales in the company, he possesses the critical insight to maximize responsible profit. A keen ability to see and capitalize on potential, he strives to constantly develop talent and in doing so, be a role model to his team, realizing the real essence of leadership is about inspiration.

Call him a leader, but if you really want to get his attention, ask him about his son, his eye for art or his fondness for traveling. An active philanthropist, Kurtis devotes his time and talent as a member of the board for the Dream Factory of Arizona, a cause he passionately supports.

Commitment. Passion. Focus. Essential ingredients of an effective leader, father and businessman.

Iv'e driven by the site a few times, they should do pretty well in that location. I was working right down the street from there until last week I moved to the Boise Mall location. My # is 928-499-0995, I'll have to swing by to see Doug one of these days- talk to you soon.

That's pretty cool! Buffalo Wild Wings just opened up a location by my house. They seem to be busy everytime I drive by. They're on a great corner location :o) I hope everything goes well for you, and that you have a great holiday season as well! Take care!

Hi Kurtis... no, I won't be coming to AZ unless they want me to manage a store there. I've just completed MIT and TKU and I'm back in my home store #304 in Springfield as an AM. Glad to hear from you and hope you're doing well. As for me, that enthusiasm at openings is with me everyday!

Yea...we all decided that we were transitioning into more than recruiting. I think I am the 1st to actually go there with the titile. Joke here is I am the "VP of Anything you need from me"...definately not just recruiting anymore...:0)
Tina was awesome! I saw Madonna on her last tour...amazing dancers, great show, but Tina...68, running around in stilettos and spandex, looking fierce...that's hard to beat. I want to be Tina when I grow up.

That's cool! Yes I am still currently at #512. My last day is December 17th, because I am graduating from GCC with my associates in business and then I will be attending NAU for my BBA in Global Management.

The new Happy Hour changes are ok. Not much of a difference. Business has slowed down so much. It's get scary out there. At least gas prices have gone down a ton!

How are things going for you?

Hi Kurtis, we haven't been affected too bad considering the state of the economy. We still see our regular guests every week and are seeing new faces in Scottsdale. The two locations that seem to be hit the hardest are Tempe and Arrowhead. In Arrowhead, we seem to be battling with Westgate.
On another note, I would love to learn more about Dream Factory. I checked out the website and was immediately taken by these kids. I would love to know how to become involved with this organization either through Fuddruckers or on a personal level.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
