www.blackbusiness.org Patricia Williams and her daughters, Nicole Enearu and Kerri Harper-Howie, have built an empire of McDonald’s franchises in the Los Angeles, California area. Combined, they employ more than 700 people in the community and generate annual revenues of almost $50 million. In April 2017, they opened their 13th franchise location Getting started More than 30 years ago, Patricia, inspired by other family members who also owned McDonald’s franchises, took the leap herself. She was working at the time as a rehabilitation therapist, and her husband was a police officer for the LAPD. But they decided to cash out their retirement plans, and take out a small business loan to enter the world of fast food. They opened their first McDonald’s location in Compton in 1984, but Patricia says it wasn’t easy. To become a certified McDonald’s owner, you have to spend some time working in the store yourself and take required classes.

That did not stop him from preparing as if it might be, however. So three years ago, back home in his native St. Petersburg, Fla. after being released for the third time in two seasons, Halapio sent out resumes for a bunch of different jobs. Only one prospective employer called back with an offer. The sixth-round selection of the New England Patriots in 2014 was now the draft pick of 3445 Car Store, an automotive dealership owned by Grant Bond, also a graduate of the University of Florida. "I really wasn't very good at selling cars, I'll just say that," Halapio told The Record and NorthJersey.com with a laugh Monday. "I did what I had to do at the time, and taking that job [as a sales representative and internet marketing manager] was the only option available to me, so … [Read more...] about How Giants’ Jon Halapio went from selling cars to realizing his NFL dream in a snap
