For Three-Peat Entrepreneur, CEO Post at Dr. G's is Part of the System
“I started out with one restaurant and ended up with a country,” says Charlotte Russell with a laugh, describing her journey from a single Quiznos store in Austin, Texas, 20 years ago, then master developer status, and ultimately president of Quiznos Canada from 2001-2005.
She’s been back stateside for a number of years, in south Florida, and has just taken the CEO post at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness. But that’s not the only franchise brand she co-owns with business partners. She’s a three-peat entrepreneur, having started Frootz restaurants, followed by DentalFix Rx, a mobile dental equipment repair and maintenance service, and Dr. G’s in 2010.
The common thread for all, she says, is her belief in offering unique products or services to customers, and in creating the systems that will free franchisees from whatever gets in their way. Read her philosophy in an upcoming edition of Franchise Times.
