The King of Brunch: Learn More About Daily Jam President Berekk Blackwell
August 3, 2020 5:47 pm
Berekk Blackwell discovered an entirely different meaning for hospitality in Japan. The heir to the Kahala Brands legacy, which includes established and popular brands like Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and Cold Stone Creamery, Berekk was in Japan to expand the Cold Stone franchise in the country.
He was struck by the finer aspects of food in the country – how practically every single meal, breakfast included, was always served on real silverware with a focus on high-quality ingredients and stellar customer service.
Today, Berekk is the president of Daily Jam, a fast-casual brunch dining experience. In keeping with the hospitality takeaways from Japan, the franchise delivers a full-service experience. Customers order at the counter or bar but sit down to modern tableware with attentive waitstaff refilling drinks and pampering guests just as in a full-service restaurant.
Berekk brings his international franchising acumen to Daily Jam, looking to rocket it to strategic growth in 2020 and beyond. The brunch concept, known for its innovative drinks and delicious menu, won a place in Entrepreneur’s Hottest Franchise Concepts of 2020 list.
After astounding success in Japan — Berekk also believes in being remarkable. For Daily Jam that means delivering the “Wow” factor and a fun twist on classics — red velvet waffles, anyone? — that will drive customers through word-of-mouth and social media.
Berekk’s vast franchising experience and the lessons that he’s learned from driving growth for memorable brands around the world are poised to craft a revolutionary concept in Daily Jam. From all indications, the young entrepreneur is ready to deliver another runaway hit.
