Fast-forward a few years later, and a career change was in order. I reached out to Jason, and we met in Dallas along with my Dad. Immediately we hit it off, and I guess the timing was just right. Over the next few months, I spent time getting to know the TR crew and working in their restaurants. Not being from the restaurant industry, I knew I had a lot to learn. A big selling point to me was the fact that the Twisted Root gang was an open book – they let me ask any question to any team member. I worked in all their kitchens and really got to know their processes. Even though I had a huge learning curve, everyone took the time early on to explain every process to me, from the grill to the balance sheet. Every member of the Twisted Root team is a reflection of their restaurants – energetic, funky, hilarious, hardworking, successful, passionate. You are not just a number or another franchisee, but rather you are treated as an integral member of the team. No question is off limits, and no idea is left unheard.
I was confident that the restaurant would be a perfect fit for Shreveport, even though this would be the first restaurant outside of Dallas. Twisted Roots are so well fit for any geographic area because of what the restaurant aims to be. We are a fun and casual place serving the great American hamburger to every demographic. We feature funky décor, fun bars, lively patios, and we strive to put a genuine smile on every face walking through the door.
