the Shop Opener – Size 11
Before entering the world of Flip Flop Shops®, John worked in the fine dining industry doing every job possible from bussing tables to cooking food. He soon (if you call 8 years "soon") grew tired of waiting on and cleaning up after people so he decided to test out the retail industry. John quickly traded in his apron and dress shoes for shorts and flip flops after being hired at the Naples Flip Flop Shops®, where he helped prepare and open the shop and worked as a Sales Associate for just over a year. John is currently working as a Flip Flop Shops® corporate trainer/shop opener; given the task of training franchisees/shop owners on how to open and operate their new Flip Flop Shops®.
John was born in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and eats, breathes, and sleeps Chicago sports teams (GO CUBS!). He graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2010 with a B.A.S in Marketing. John currently resides in Southwest Florida where he enjoys spending time with his family, playing the guitar, listening to classic blues/rock albums, and living the Free Your Toes® lifestyle on a daily basis.
