Meet Jenna Byrne, Franchise Sales Rockstar who started working at Jimmy John’s 4 years ago. Formerly a Guerrilla Marketer and Marketing Hotline Specialist, Jenna now meets with potential franchisees and works with exisiting franchisees on their growth plans. Check out her rockstar story:
When and where was your first Job? Lifeguard at the Oak Park Country Club
How did you get started at JJs? I had a friend Mike Monier who was a Guerrilla Marketer tell me how fun his job was. It seemed right up my alley so I sent in my resume and interviewed shortly after.
What other positions have you had at JJs? Guerrilla Marketer, Marketing Hotline Specialist
What do you love most about your job? Meeting new franchisees and spreading the JJ love.
What do you know now that you wish you knew then? Bob Norman told me he heard a panel of our franchisees speak and give advice to newer franchisees. On the panel, Dan Vansteenburg’s advice was about how important it is to always serve others. That stuck with me. I know now how important it is to serve others first. Serve your customers, serve the franchisees, and serve your friends and family.
What is your favorite JJ's sandwich? Slim 1 with bacon
If you could describe yourself in a #hashtag, what would it be? #spunkybada$$
Best advice to future JJ Rockstars? My advice would be to always work hard & bring energy to everything you do in life and at JJ's. The harder I worked, the luckier I got!
