Fast & Serious Execs Share Mottos That Drive Growth


C-level officers of the smartest-growing franchises are sharing their wisdom with our reporters, as we prepare our exclusive Fast & Serious ranking for the January issue. Here are a few of my favorites so far, with many more to come.

 Peter Riggs, Pita Pit: “We’ve always had a philosophy of grow smart first, and then you can increase your speed as you see fit.”

Eric Casaburi, Retro Fitness: “I had the passion to push and push and push when everybody was scared. I was scaling it at the right time, when the real estate market was busting up.”

Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas: “It’s critically important that everybody associated with the brand and the company knows why it exists and has a reason for being. It’s too easy to lose sight on the long-term goal in search of the short term financial gains.

Andrew Alfano, The Learning Experience: “I don’t think money is a dirty word. Performance and driving revenue and creating profit, is actually what gives us permission to do all the things we want to do.”

John Davis, Keller Williams: “Focus on the activities that generate results. Inspect what you expect. Rinse and repeat.”
