Rick, as a former McDonald’s Franchisee with 7 restaurants in Midtown Manhattan NYC for 31 years, has a strong background in buying, selling, managing and systematically improving distressed restaurants. He started when he was 21 with one store. After proving to McDonald’s stringent standards that he could build a leadership team and improve sales, profits and operations systematically, he bought more stores. Ultimately he would lead and manage a team of 350 employees. After selling his company a few years ago, he discovered that success in Multifamily syndication was very similar to his old business. Now, as a multifamily syndicator, he is using his past experience to build his portfolio. Rick graduated from Tufts University with a BA in Sociology.
