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.

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.
