About this episode

Guest: Joe DeLoss, Head Fryer & Founder, Hot Chicken Takeover

Customers come first. Time is money. Tie it to the bottom line.

In each of these instances, we think we’re serving the business. But what if we thought first with our heart instead of our head–could we still serve the business just as well? This interview with Joe DeLoss, Head Fryer and Founder of Hot Chicken Takeover, will deeply challenge your thinking on that concept.

In this episode, Ben talks with Joe about the company’s rapid growth, unorthodox hiring strategies, and what happens when you bend from your principles during times of high-pressure growth. Additionally, they discuss tailoring employee benefits to meet the needs of the workers instead of offering a template plan like the competition.

Through it all, you’ll hear Joe’s focus is not just on marketing strategy or chicken recipes, but on the employees he serves as the leader of the business.
