In this episode of Take-Away with Sam Oches, Sam talks with CEO Peter Cancro, COO Mike Manzo, and District Manager Shelbie Sticca of Jersey Mike’s. The three joined Sam individually at the Prosper Forum in Amelia Island, Fla., to discuss the chain’s remarkable success over the past 50 years and especially the past three years, during which the brand has grown sales by 60 percent and opened around 300 locations per year. That success is rooted in how the brand invests in its team members and turns them into leaders.

In this conversation, you’ll find out why:

  • You should treat your company like a training company 
  • If you bet on your people and their success, you will be rewarded 
  • If you don’t invest, you’ll fall behind 
  • Show your employees the path they can take to leadership positions
  • Take care of your employees personally, not just financially 
  • You can measure your brand’s success by the impact on all of your stakeholders
