Veterans make great franchise owners, leading small to medium sized teams in fast-paced operations where seamless execution is critical to success. They also serve well in roles oriented around process improvement and LEAN methodology, looking for efficiencies and cost-savings within an organization or process. Zach has cultivated a culture of process improvement within his franchise, and spearheaded the launch of the Lean6Ninja program.

Zach’s career combines these disciplines of leadership and process improvement and highlights the value that military leaders bring to organizations in the form of employee development and empowerment.
