Every Business Has A Story
Best friends since they were eight years old, Brian Burchill and Robert Maynard share a passion for good times, good food, and the performing arts. It turns out that’s a pretty good combination for the restaurant business.
In 2005, they opened their first Toastery in Huntersville, NC, with three more to follow. By 2013, they had turned their big idea into a thriving franchise system. Today, nearly 40 Famous Toasteries have popped up along the East Coast, with more on the way. In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
