In case you hadn’t noticed, Jersey Mike’s Subs is now the nation’s #1 fastest-growing sandwich chain, with 1,500 locations. (They opened 173 just last year alone.)

And John Hughes, Brand Ambassador, is part of the secret sauce.

John joined Mike’s 35 years ago in its very first location.

And since then, he’s been helping hire, train, develop, coach, and lead the staff of this rocketship.

In this 20-minute conversation, John reveals the secrets of the DNA that Jersey Mike’s seeks in all of its recruiting efforts, where they find the best candidates, and how they train them to provide a remarkable customer experience.

In short, this episode is Yummy!

You’ll eat it up.
