About Our Guest

After finishing high school, Bruce Evans went on to spend the next four years as a member of the United States Army. The duration of which would instill him with the traits and habits necessary to eventually make his return to the private sector, more poised and capable than he could have ever imagined. Confident in the leadership he had gleaned from the Army, Bruce almost immediately planted his feet in the restaurant industry, rising the ranks of the sector with various brands before finally landing where he was meant to be, working as the VP of Franchise Development for Capriotti’s and Wing Zone.
