SEATTLE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--graZie Mobile, a Seattle-based company providing a digital marketing and promotional solution for multi-unit restaurants, bars, and beverage companies, is pleased to announce 20-year restaurant veteran and restaurateur Jeff Chandler has joined the graZie Mobile advisory board.
“I am truly excited for the innovative and creative solution that graZie is making become a reality. They are building a great product that I can genuinely be proud to be a part of”
As a veteran in the restaurant industry, Chandler has experienced the industry from many perspectives, as a leader, operator, entrepreneur, real estate developer and a single restaurant start-up owner. He created Cal’s Classic American in 2010. Prior, he led Ram International between 1998 and 2006 as its owner and managing partner.
Chandler grew Ram’s portfolio of restaurants by 75 percent, navigated a successful sale of seven Humperdink’s restaurants in Texas, and guided the strategic implementation of 24 craft breweries into existing locations. In 2006, Chandler sold his interest in the operating company, retaining ownership of 30 developments. At the time of sale, Ram had 36 restaurants, with sales approaching one hundred million dollars, operating in seven states, and employing nearly 3,000 team members.
“We are thrilled to have Jeff join our team,” explains graZie Mobile CEO Chris Roution. “Jeff brings decades of real-world restaurant experience to our team. His strategic insight and deep understanding of mobile technologies is exactly what we need as we continue to grow our products and company.”
“I am truly excited for the innovative and creative solution that graZie is making become a reality. They are building a great product that I can genuinely be proud to be a part of,” explained Chandler.
Chandler received his BA degree in Finance from the University of Washington while competing on the gridiron as an offensive center during the UW’s prominent rise to the national championship. He has addressed audiences at the National and State Restaurant Shows in Chicago, Texas, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Chandler’s knowledge and expertise extends from his experience as a single unit entrepreneur, having grown and guided a company with 36 locations through hands-on operational and strategic leadership.
