What Drives the Founder of Torchy’s Tacos
Being in restaurants is pretty much all I’ve done my whole career. My first job was a fry cook at Popeyes. I was a busboy and a line cook, then I went to a country club, and that’s where I first started following a love of cooking; that’s when I started thinking this could be a fun career. I was an executive chef at the World Bank for about four and a half years. We served food from all over the world, so it gave me a big background in terms of different types of cuisines and nationalities.
