Frank J. Sandoval
“I was only nineteen years old and already managing a busy restaurant.” – Frank J. Sandoval
Frank Sandoval is the first person in the book (chronologically) who started as crew and ended up being an owner/operator. As of this writing, his company owns fourteen restaurants in Colorado—two of them owned by his older son. He is noteworthy for being one of the first franchisees of Hispanic heritage and one of the youngest when he started. Frank Sandoval comes from a modest background and is a great example of a group represented by many others in the book who achieved a remarkable degree of success starting from an entry-level position.
