Making the World a Better Place one Franchise at a Timeby Cory McCoy
Jeremy Roy wouldn’t ask his employees to do anything he wouldn’t do himself. That’s because Roy has performed every duty possible at Great American Cookies in the 22 years he has been a part of the company. Roy started out as an assistant manager and worked his way up to regional manager. His work ethic impressed Bryan Selden, who owned the Longview and Tyler franchises. Selden would make Roy an offer that changed his life. He wanted to expand, but he needed someone to handle the business side of the operation. In 2003 Selden, Roy and Chuck Schrick formed Dough Rollers, Ltd. and bought five franchises. Roy has taken a faith-based approach to his managing style in the years since.
