John Pham, a retired Fortune 500 finance and engineering executive, has a passion for finding good business models and investments. 

After trying TMAD in Las Vegas, he simply had to trust his gut. Oh, and also his extensive knowledge of low-cost business models, high-quality product offerings, great margins, and unique concepts.  

But John’s reason for singing a multi-unit deal for three shops has more to do with family than it does finance. He wants to build a legacy and have a place that his sons can one day own and operate. 

John is famous for saying, “Every obstacle is an opportunity.” We couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’re so proud to have John become part of the TMAD family of franchisees. 

Welcome to the fam, John Pham.
