J&M Family Management, LLC, a family-owned business with a passion for senior care spanning two decades and the operator of Autumn Leaves®, a national leader in standalone residential memory care, announces the promotion of Bobby Jeffrey to the position of Executive Vice President of Hospitality and Restaurant Operations.
The appointment marks the expansion of J&M Family Management’s portfolio into restaurant management following an affiliate’s recent signing of a six restaurant franchise contract with Williams Chicken®, one of the most established fried chicken chains in the North Texas market. J&M Family Management was awarded the management contracts for all six locations planned for North Texas and Chicago, Illinois.
Jeffrey’s four-decade career in the hotel, restaurant, and senior living businesses makes him the natural choice to oversee the expansion and growth of this new division for J&M Family Management. His lifelong career as a chef and his intensive training at the Culinary Institute of America provided a solid foundation on which he has built an impressive career spanning every aspect of culinary management, from restaurants, hotels, on-site catering, as well as nearly 20 years leading culinary and dietary services for J&M Family Managements’ senior living communities. He is a member of the Texas Chef’s Association, American Culinary Federation, an American Safety Council Certified Food Manager, and a member of the Argentum Executive Roundtable.
“Bobby’s extensive experience and guidance has been instrumental in helping us navigate this venture into restaurant management. We are excited to begin this new chapter and could not be more excited to start it with Bobby leading our efforts and joining forces with Hiawatha Williams and his incredible legacy of community service and down-home hospitality. Our missions align perfectly, with an exceptional product and a family-oriented servant-minded focus being at the heart of both businesses,” says Mitchell W. Warren, Founder and CEO of J&M Family Management.
