Start to Finish: Christine Specht-Palmert
I’ve always wanted to work with people, serve them, and influence their lives for the better; I never thought that desire would be met in the quick-serve industry. My father and his cousin started Cousins Subs in 1972, and I became a member of the team at 15 years old. I worked as a cashier through high school, and even some while in college, but took a break after graduation. Armed with a degree in criminology and a master’s in public administration, I sought out opportunities outside of quick service.
