Atlanta Small Business Profile – Josh Zimmer, Jersey Mike’s Subs

On this week’s episode of the Atlanta Small Business Profile, our host Ted Jenkin sits down with Josh Zimmer, COO of Two Bucks, Inc. which owns nine Jersey Mike’s Subs locations.

Originally, Josh wanted to start his career in the restaurant industry by opening up a fast-casual concept of his own creation. Unfortunately, nine to ten years ago, the economy wasn’t very strong and Josh could not come up with all the means to make that concept a reality. This forced him to explore other opportunities, like franchised businesses. That’s when he found the owners of Two Bucks, Inc. Two Bucks already had four Jersey Mike’s franchise locations up and running, but they needed someone to come aboard and help them manage operations and grow their stores.

Josh knew he would be a good fit for the business given his 15 years of hospitality experience and 10 years of corporate marketing experience. He had the drive to go in this direction. Owning and operating franchises comes with its own unique set of challenges. Josh says there are a lot of obligations to the franchisor, however, the successes and failures you experience, are yours alone. You need to be diligent in what franchise you explore to make sure its right for you and your ambitions.

To find out more about Josh and how he oversees nine Jersey Mike’s Sub shops, be sure to watch our entire interview above.
