Olive Garden

Monday, July 28, 2008


Today while the surveyors were on site marking property and building corners, we went to the groundbreaking meeting. We met Michael Sawyers and Jimmy Lopez there. Michael Sawyers is our Project Manager and Jimmy Lopez is our McDonald's Area Construction Manager. We were then met by the Partners for this project, Mr & Mrs Jasper. Along with them were several other McDonald's Operations people, including Ruthann Peterman & Michael Jasper. Later, H&K representative, John Slovak, joined our meeting. This meeting was helpful in getting everyone acquainted with each other, as well as being able to get information that will allow us to begin the project and other items that we identified as needing further research. The Jaspers did confirm that this project will not be the average build and we can expect many upgrade changes. Woody & I are definitely excited about the challenge we are beginning. The lines of communication were definitely strengthened today. This is one of our most important tools, so our goal is to make sure they remain open and positive.
