It's Fresh & Fast and no one else can do it.


Brent Herbeck

"When we’re getting sandwiches back to the customer before they pay and deliveries out the door in 4 minutes, our customers are watching. Some of those customers could be future employees, and they’re seeing it and believing. It’s true when we say freaky fast. That’s the enjoyment I get out of it, when I’m working the line with my staff, getting those sandwiches back and seeing people freak out. That’s what it’s all about. It’s that one sandwich; it’s fresh & fast and no one else can do it."

Nothing Beats Hard Work


Marc Dubreuil

"Nothing beats hard work. You might not be the best at what you do, you might not be the fastest, you might not know everything there is to know about it, but putting the pedal down, grinding it out and working your a$$ off, pays off much more than knowing everything. You could know it all, but if you aren’t willing to put the work and the time in, it doesn’t matter. Hard work is the most important thing.”

-Marc Dubreuil, General Manager, Champaign, IL #9015



Don't judge a book by it's cover



"I was adopted by my parents Mr. and Mrs. BobbleHead…probably from China. But don’t judge a book by its cover, I’m a smart BobbleHead with an extensive vocabulary. I can do anything I put my mind to. My limitations won’t hold me back.”

Always work hard and have a plan


Nathan Blye

"My Dad is a great example of a hard worker, he worked in a factory his whole life. My parents did everything they could to support us. They’ve taught me that you can’t be afraid of criticism, whether it’s good or bad. Always work hard and have a plan."

-Nathan Blye, Catering Manager, Bloomington, IN #379

I love making people laugh


Andrew Johnson

"I love making people laugh and laughing with them. I was the youngest of 3 boys and we’re all within 4 years of each other so we were always cracking jokes and getting into trouble, but my mom kept us in check. She has a sense of humor too, I think that’s where I get it. I love laughing and being around good people, so I have fun at work. I think it’s important to have fun and bring light into the world."

-Andrew Johnson, Guerilla Marketer, Crete, IL

What I look forward to



"Parenting is a challenge, but it’s also my motivation. Everything goes back to my daughter. She’s what I look forward to every day, I just love waking up to her. She’s the whole reason I started as a driver and worked my way up to become a General Manager."

-Michael Durham, General Manager, Lake Havasu City, AZ #2730

One of my favorite stories


Julian Cano
"One of our regulars has been coming to our store for over 3 years and she has a super customized order, but I know it by heart. When she comes in, we always have it ready for her. We barely talked in the beginning, but after a while I learned her name and she started confiding in me about her son. Her son is autistic and so is my little brother.  One day she came in and she made these cool, handmade autism awareness bracelets. She didn’t even get food, she just came in out of nowhere and was like, ‘Here, I wanted you to have this.' So I was like, oh man, it got me choked up a little. She’s sweet and she didn’t have to do that. That’s one of my favorite stories."

-Julian Cano, General Manager, Mesa, AZ #2448

I love taking care of my managers!


Alison Wofford

"We love seeing people grow into management positions and beyond. We hired two employees to work with me when we opened our Lake Havasu City, Arizona store in 2014 and now one of them is an operating partner with us. It’s been so fun to watch her grow! Different people have different strengths and weaknesses. I love taking care of my managers, so my managers can take care of our team, and our team can take care of our customers.”
