Why JJR Franchise

To me it was just very simple. There are very few times in a person life when they come across an opportunity that can completely change the course of their life, and I view this as one of those opportunities. To be a part of something, that you have a hand in creating and establishing, building, and growing. It is something that you can take pride in, being able to physically see something that can grow, and knowing that it is directly related to the efforts you and your team put in every day. To be in a position, where one can give back, and giveback in the most meaningful of ways. It is the best way to directly cause a lasting change within one’s community.
