Linda Morse
Vice President of Operations

Hi I’m Linda. I began my career with the best company I’ve ever worked for in 1990 at an Arby’s in Waukesha, Wisconsin. I worked as an Assistant Manager for 8 years, a General Manager for 4 years, a Regional Manager for 4 years,  a Director for 4 years, and now the Vice President of Operations for 8 years.  There are so many wonderful people working in this company from the front line all the way to the support staff. We have fun at work, and yes, we work hard. The most important thing about our Company is that we respect each and every person on our team and we want you to succeed! We have brought many people up through the ranks that have started as Team Members. Our culture is to promote from within. We are family-oriented and we treat each other as such. We are proud of our food, our Brand, and each other.

Jim Jones
Director of Training

I started my career with the Arby's brand in May 1989 as an Assistant Manager. Through hard work, dedication and a strong desire to make a difference, I was promoted to a General Manager in November 1990. Through the next 12 years, I successfully managed 3 restaurants, opened 2 new restaurants, and was able to become a Nationally Certified Training Restaurant. In 2002, I was promoted to Regional Training Supervisor, in which I helped with new store openings, new product roll-outs, and new management and team trainees development.

In 2013, I was promoted to Director of Training, for the company. Since this time, I have had to opportunity to visit every store in the company, meet the wonderful and awesome management teams, and many of the team members. I see a lot of potential in many of these up and coming team members, and would be very excited to see them continue to grow and advance their careers with the company, as so many of our current General Managers and Regional Managers have done.

Kasandra Hopkins
Regional Training Supervisor

At the beginning of my Arby's journey 11 years ago, I never imagined this would be my career.  Needing a second job, I started as a team member at one of the Bozeman, MT locations. I steadily moved through the ranks as a Team Trainer, Unit Training Coordinator, Shift Manager, Assistant Manager, General Manager, Regional Manager in Training, and now, Regional Training Supervisor.  I could not and can not get enough of Arby's and sharing my passion for training, learning and growing with others.  Though we at Carisch, Inc. are a large franchise, it has the feel of a close knit family.  I have seen the owner manning the fry station, the President and Vice President lending a hand while visiting stores, the celebration of achievements both personally and professionally by all levels in our organization.  This is a company that truly believes in it's people and their ability to achieve their dreams and I am PROUD to be a part of this team.
