August AMA luncheon

By Candie A. Price

The August AMA luncheon featured Keith Richards, founder of Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe.  Richards, a former manager at Bottega’s Restaurant, vacationed in Greece in 1997 with his wife, Amy, and came back to Birmingham with a newfound passion for Greek food. In 1998 the first Taziki’s restaurant was opened with the realized goal of providing a friendly atmosphere, building lasting relationships with customers and a menu loaded with fresh and tasty food that wouldn’t be complete without their Signature Pasta! His drive and hard work has resulted in Taziki’s being not just a staple in the Birmingham community, but a franchise earmarked to have 71 stores nationwide by 2017!!!

We were so excited to have Richards share his humble beginnings and AMAzing success with our attendees today! If you missed hearing the energy and wit Richards has for what he does, we can only hope you won’t miss our other successful speakers!

Next month’s luncheon features Bill Todd of o2ideas who will share his unique perspective of winding up in the C-Suite and ad agency. Don’t miss it, Register early!
