Nick Carulla’s Bio
Director of Operations
Starting his restaurant journey on store opening teams for brands like Buffalo Wild Wings, Chuy’s, and our very own Jefferson’s, Nick has become an expert in training, p and l’s, and sales growth.
In January of 2013, the founder of Jefferson’s reached out to Nick about purchasing the Murfreesboro, TN location. Nick came on board as the Director of Operations
for the brand and owner of the Murfreesboro location. Since then Nick has continued that role for Jefferson’s Franchise Systems, and in partnership with his brother,
they now own seven additional Jefferson’s and a branded food truck. The restaurants are located in Gadsden, AL; Hiram, GA; Rockmart, GA; Villa Rica, GA; Brentwood, TN; Chattanooga, TN; Murfreesboro, TN and Manchester, TN while the food truck operates in the Middle Tennessee area.
Nick considers himself a Jefferson’s maniac. It’s his favorite thing to talk about, and reflecting on the opportunities that Jefferson’s has created for him is what fuels his passion to want to continue to grow and succeed. He’s in the unique position of being a franchisee and working on the “corporate” team which allows him to
see things from multiple perspectives. His motto is do everything with the guest in mind first. He’s probably most proud of the relationships he’s built with franchisees, team members, vendors, and guests. Nick would be the first to tell you that he’s available 24/7 whether it’s for urgent help or just a listening ear.
