On April 12, 2016, I was a motivational speaker for the Taco John's Franchisee meeting in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Close to 200 franchise owners attended the event.
Taco John opened it's first taco stand in 1968 and has been serving fast mexican food ever since. Taco John franchises have over 380 locations and are in 27 states across the Mid- West. What stands out most about the franchise is a very close knit, family culture. Many franchise owners have been involved for years and continue to grow and contribute to the local economy.
These savvy business owners take pride in hiring young, enthusiastic employees and helping build a strong foundation and work ethic... and of course, serving amazing fast, mexican food.
The very first franchise location was bought and run by Dick and Janette Hamilton, who were enthusiastically present at the event. The franchise was founded by Harold Holmes and James Woodson, who have since passed, however their families are still actively involved. In fact, Harold Holmes wife, Nona Holmes, was present.
This proud group of franchise owners really know how to work hard and play hard. They clearly have a strong work ethic and a vibrant, meaningful work culture.
I presented the opening motivational keynote, This Would be Funny if it Wasn't Happening to Me! We focused on how to build a strong level 3 culture in each franchise location.
