Where are you from originally and how long have you lived (or worked) in the Houston/Sugar Land area?
I am from Sulphur Louisiana born and raised. I commute 3 times a week to this beautiful area.
I have 11 dogs. An American Bulldog, 9 English Bulldogs, and a rescue.
One thing about living or working here that has surprised you the most?
The people! You guys are the definition of community. I have seen neighbors helping neighbors and friendliness beyond compare.
Can you provide me with a description of your business?
We are a restaurant that makes healthy easier. While maintaining a world class taste. We use no fills, no preservatives, no added sugar, and no ice, just fruits and vegetables. We will be offering fresh cold pressure juices and smoothies to the Sugar Land area. Each juice contains 2-5 pounds of produce.
How long have you been in business?
We are a new concept and one of the fastest growing franchises in America.
What made you decide to be an entrepreneur and open your own business?
I was a regular costumer at the first location in Lake Charles. When a franchising opportunity became available, I leaped at the chance to bring a great product to other cities!
What do you enjoy the most about running a business?
Main Squeeze I enjoy having a world class product that brings joy to our costumers while making healthy easier. I also enjoy bringing a first class experience to the community.
Have you always been entrepreneurial and a risk-taker?
Yes. I inherited my entrepreneurial spirit from my mother and father.
What did you used to do before you opened your own business?
I have always been an entrepreneur. We have a second-generation car dealership with 11 brands. I have always enjoyed buying and leasing real estate.
Why is your place of business different from the rest?
Product and people. Our product uses a cold press method to retain nutrients. We press and bottle all our juices in house fresh daily. Our people are trained by an elite staff out off New Orleans to bring the best costumer experience possible.
Favorite restaurant to eat at in Sugar Land?
I have discovered Salata and love it!
How do you unwind after a long week of work?
By playing with our loving canines and taking my fiancé to dinner and a movie.
What would be one fun fact that would surprise people about you?
For the past five years I have been an active member of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign. We raise money for breast cancer during the month of October. Last year my team donated 75,350.00 to the American Cancer Society. We were ranked number 2 out of 3,400 men raising money for this campaign. I am very proud to be a part of this and am passionate about ending the fight against breast cancer.
