We are pleased to announce that John Morningstar, currently a multi-unit franchise owner with units operating in Ohio and Michigan, has accepted the position of Executive Vice President of Business Development.
John already understands our system as a franchise owner which gives us complete confidence in him and his experience. In his new role, he will serve as our National Account Representative, and his key function will be to cultivate and develop business opportunities and assist with new start-up locations.
Before beginning his career at Fleet Enterprises, John worked at Pepsi Cola for 20 years. Working his way up the ladder at that company, he started in route sales, moved up to the district level, and then to account executive. During his tenure at Pepsi Cola, he earned several sales accolades, including Salesman of the Month, Salesman of the Year, District of the Year, and Branch of the Year.
In 2006, John left Pepsi Cola and partnered with James Parent to purchase a multi-unit franchise with Fleet Enterprises. He operated as a mobile technician for two years and then transitioned to a supervisory role, ultimately helping to grow the operation to seven units.
John will bring another level of professionalism and support to our organization, to our operating units and to our customers. Just knowing how he works as a franchise operator, we are sure that growth and opportunity will always be fully explored by John, for the benefit of all. We couldn’t be happier to have him join our Corporate Team.
