Graze was looking to expand to the TC market in 2013. They needed to find a space with existing kitchen elements to reduce their capital outlay. It took 9-12 months of discussions, reporting, and market research when Derrick got wind that the last Quiznos was closing in the perfect location. He was able to utilize his large network and referred local contractors and vendors to achieve efficiencies and reduce the capital outlay. Our community ate up the “Graze Craze” on Gage so Derrick began looking for their second location in the Parkway. They are currently scouting location #3... stay tuned.
...the great thing about Derrick is/and was he wasn't just talking, he was asking/inquiring/digging, for as much information as possible from us. The more he knew, the better the fit. He showed a keen interest in us, in our business, and in our hopeful future success.
