Today our show is about Starting a Restaurant Franchise and we will talking with Jay Medley, who moved to Atlanta, GA 9 months ago to start the first of several Newk’s Restaurants. Jay will be sharing some KEY Advice for the development stage and lessons learned up to this point.
The purpose of this program is to bring you several episodes documenting Jay’s experience from the development phase to fully operational and managing growth.
Newk’s is a franchise that is growing fast in the Southeastern U.S., whose owners previously started McAllisters Deli and have a great track record of success. Newk’s is an express casual dining experience offering fresh tossed salads, sandwiches, pizzas, soups and cakes that are all made from scratch. I have eaten in several of their restaurants and can attest that they are fabulous, very affordable and the food quality is very high.
Jay Medley is originally from Gulfport MS and graduated from the University of Mississippi. Jay spent many years as a successful Financial Advisor with A.G. Edwards, but always had the desire to go out on his own and start a business. Jay now resides in Atlanta GA with his wife Randi and three children.
