Marc Ashley Celebrates the Grand Opening of BurgerIM in Greensboro, NC
Last night was a special night for our family as my brother Marc Ashley just celebrated the Grand Opening of his new restaurant in Greensboro, NC – BurgerIM!!!! As you can see in the pictures below there was a great turnout for last night’s festivities, with lots of first responders in attendance. Marc and his BurgerIM business partner Louis Demar Martin have put a lot of heart and soul into this business, and I can’t wait to visit their location when we’re in town for meetings and International Convention!
What I love most about their business is the fact that when Marc and Louis set out to create this restaurant, they wanted to do something special for the community in the process. Louis’ father was himself a firefighter for over 30 years, so first responders have an extra special place in our hearts. Marc and Louis wanted to do something special to recognize the first responders who always put others’ lives and well-being ahead of their own – that’s why all first responders receive 50% their orders at Marc’s BurgerIM location! I really love that because these are the people we rely on everyday – and many times they are overlooked or taken for granted. But not with Marc and Louis!
What made last night’s Grand Opening even more special was the fact that the Mayor of Greensboro, Nancy Vaughan, came out for the special ribbon cutting ceremony. Nancy is an incredible mayor who is very proactive and involved in the progress and development of the city, and has even visited the Market America headquarters in the past to learn more about what we do while strengthening our ties within the local business community.
That’s what good civic leadership is all about, and the city of Greensboro is truly lucky to have leaders who care so much about helping local businesses grow. Thanks to Mayor Vaughan for coming out to support Marc and his new BurgerIM location in Greensboro!
As entrepreneurs we all love to see when others take the reins and build their dreams – and in this case Marc and Louis built an incredible restaurant! UnFranchise Owners who make the trip to International Convention in Greensboro, NC definitely have an exciting new place to eat while also supporting a fellow UnFranchise Owner! So be sure to visit Marc’s new BurgerIM location in Greensboro wherever you’re in town!
