Adams’ Restaurant Experience 

Before joining Pancheros, Adams was with Jimmy John’s for six years. He also worked with other leading brands including Dunkin’ and CoreLife Eatery.

Adams has experience working both in operations and as a franchisee. “My favorite part about franchising is the opportunity it provides for one’s ability to grow professionally and within your community. Franchising allows you to achieve your dreams and career goals and one of the best parts is seeing the growth of the people on the journey alongside you,” Adams said.  

A Love of Franchising

To Adams, franchising “is truly a team-oriented industry, and each member is an integral part of the franchise. From the folks who wash dishes and mop floors to the servers and leadership team, each person plays a role in creating the fun, hospitable environment.” 

For entrepreneurs looking to make the leap into franchising, Adams says, “The first step is to find a segment. Whatever it is, it should be something you are passionate about. Franchising is not just a job; it’s a lifestyle, so you have to truly believe in the brand.” 

Throughout his years in franchising, Adams has learned the importance of networking. “There are plenty of networking and mentorship opportunities in the restaurant community, so you’ll find resources as long as you’re committed to your growth,” Adams said. 

Adams believes he is well suited for his role. “I enjoy working with fast-paced hospitality brands that truly care about making their guests’ days better, and I’ve found that restaurant brands are the perfect match for my high energy and passionate personality,” Adams said.
