Hidden Gems: Meet Julian Boyd

We are committed to putting out the best products possible for every guest while leaving a lasting impact on our community.

After graduating from Morehouse College (2012), I pursued my MBA at UNC Kenan Flagler Business School (2018) where I focused on Entrepreneurship and Family Business. Over the years, I worked with many brands and helped them grow multiple franchised units. I always knew that wanted to be involved in the family business, but I wanted to focus on the growth and expansion through franchising.

We currently have two locations in Memphis and one franchised location in Detroit (Southfield), Michigan. We are also going to open in Winter Haven, FL (near Orlando), Chicago, Atlanta, Olive Branch, MS, and a few other markets.
