  • “When GPS acquired my restaurant, I felt rejuvenated. Most of my colleagues were hesitant with having a new owner, but I felt excited and ready for the challenge. When Tom (CEO and Founder of GPS Hospitality) sat down and told me his story, he then listened to mine. He was genuinely interested in my goals and I left appreciated and supported more than ever before.”

    avatarKim Metty, General Manager (Maryland)
  • “GPS has the best support system in the Atlanta office. I never hear no, I can’t or I’m too busy. They provide advanced back-of-house and front-of-house systems that help us run our restaurants. I have said on more than one occasion, ‘How did we ever do this before?’ And most importantly, GPS invests in people with training and development programs and helping them advance.”

    avatarAngie Poe, District Leader (Michigan)
  • “The aggressive growth of the company, and the commitment to challenge and grow the leaders throughout the organization, is truly what makes GPS a special place to work. In just a few years, I have seen several people achieve promotions and partnerships, and I have also enjoyed in some of those successes by becoming a Director of Operations. I am confident that this trend of creating opportunities and growing our people will continue as we strive towards our goal of being a billion dollar company!“

    avatarBobby Garner, Director of Operations (Alabama/Florida)
  • “I’ve spent my entire career with Burger King – and I’ve been through several acquisitions over the years. With GPS, I’ve found a company that really lives its values (Goals, People and Service). When we started setting goals, I finally felt comfortable enough to share my goal of becoming a District Leader. And now I’m proud to say I’ve achieved that goal!”

    avatarElizabeth Helms, District Leader (Florida)
  • “My previous employer told me that I was too young and would never be a good manager. In the five years since I joined GPS as a Shift Leader, within six months I was promoted to Assistant Manager, two years later I became a General Manager, was certified as a Training Manager and am now a District Leader. The only limitations we have are ourselves, GPS showed me that and that they truly care for their employees and helping them reach their goals.”

    avatarDonovan Barr, District Leader (Georgia)
  • “When I first came the GPS it was a culture shock. I had never been with a company with a culture like this. The Goals, People, Service is incredible and incredibly addictive and pushes you to perform. I knew that this was the company I wanted to grow with. I would like to thank everyone involved with my growth and development.“

    avatarKevin Brown, Director of Operations (Alabama/Mississippi)
  • “GPS creates successful people by teaching them how to set goals and providing them with the tools to achieve them. I became a General Manager when I was 19. With the support of my District Leader, Director of Operations, and the team in Atlanta, I ran two very successful restaurants over the past four years in Michigan. Now, I am a District Leader. That’s what GPS is all about! We’re always trying to get better - seeking feedback and acting on it to improve.”

    avatarWill Richards, District Leader (Michigan)
  • “GPS has played a big role in not only my career, but also my life. Working for a company who is goal focused has enabled me to look at goals differently and incorporate them into my everyday life. Since I have been employed with GPS, I bought a house and have been promoted twice. GPS trained me not only to become successful in my career but also in life. Anyone who shares the same values as the company, works hard, and has a desire to succeed will definitely grow at GPS!“
