Representation of the Retail and Restaurant Industry

It’s critical for retailers and restaurant owners to work with professionals who know their business, and the JUX Retail and Restaurant Team knows the retail and restaurant business.

John Saunders  served as Vice President and General Counsel for a multi-unit Wendy’s Wendy’s with 50 plus locations throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin and 30 Fannie May Chocolate locations throughout the Midwest. We’ve been there in the trenches, and we want you to benefit from our experience.

The JUX Retail and Restaurant Team also benefits from Maureen Carlson’s focus on mergers and acquisitions as well as Kim Lowe’s corporate and tax guidance. Kim Lowe helps retailers and restaurants navigate the complex legal and business issues faced by the modern enterprise.  Utilizing decades of legal, business and leadership experience, as well as her nationally recognized unique cross-sector expertise, Kim helps business and thought leaders create, fund and operate for-profit enterprises, benefit corporations, cooperatives and/or nonprofit organizations within the retail and restaurant space.
