MEET OUR FOUNDER
Founder & Chairman
Joe Bisogno is the original founder of Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs. He is a true visionary and serial entrepreneur with history building successful businesses across a variety of industries.
His entrepreneurial journey started at the ripe age of six when he started a lemonade stand, then he started his own ice cream truck at 18, and a purchased a gas station and used car lot at 22.
Knowing he always wanted to start his own restaurant, Bisogno took a position with McDonald’s Corporation as an instructor of the company’s franchise program. He spent more than 10 years observing and understanding the business and operations that would one day help him build his own.
In 1989, Bisogno left McDonald’s to start Mr. Goodcents Inc. and opened his first restaurant, Mr. Goodcents Subs & Pastas in Lenexa, Kan. The franchised company now has more than 70 locations across the country and Bisogno remains involved in the day-to-day operations.
Bisogno also owns several other companies including Custom Foods, a leading bread manufacturer, as well as a technology company and outdoor wildlife hunting retreat.
