Greg has always loved serving people. His interest in brand integration began as part of the 2-year complementary day-part branding task force; charged to successfully integrate Dunkin’ Donuts, Baskin Robbins, and TOGO’s Sandwiches together under one roof. Greg has used that knowledge to design Topper’s Craft Creamery as a unique co-brand that can easily be added to most any venue. Greg regularly speaks at national franchise conferences on the power of co-branding and is the author of Inside the Box: the Power of Complementary Branding.
