Jeff EnglerFounding Shareholder & Chairman, Border Foods Companies
A proven, successful entrepreneur, Jeff has thrived in the food industry since 1978. His accolades include being a founding partner of Border Foods, the 30th largest franchise operation in the country, and co-founding Delaget in 1999. Back then, his QSR team didn’t have reliable, quick access to restaurant data in the home office. Being a metric focused organization, he knew there had to be a better way to get a big picture view of their operation.
So, he and his brother, Lee Engler, set out to build one of the industry’s first above-store reporting systems, which eventually evolved into the Delaget Stats reporting solution. After spinning Delaget off into an independent company, Jeff has continued to support the company as a Board Member, customer, and industry guru.
