Meet Don Hudspeth:
The experience that Don Hudspeth brings to 1st Choice Restaurant Equipment and Supply, LLC. is vast which makes him a valuable part of our team. Don has worn many hats during his career in the food service industry. At one point, his family owned two of the oldest restaurants in San Antonio where he started bussing tables as a boy. He and his brother managed both restaurants while Don attended Southwest Texas State University but after graduation the west came calling.
Don moved to Colorado where he joined a broad-line distributor and built upon his real world experience in food service by working in the supply and equipment division. His territory was the Western Slope of Colorado, which included the ski areas of Vail, Aspen, Steamboat Springs and Telluride. Ten years later, he moved back to Texas to work for a traditional restaurant equipment company and held positions in street sales, bid and contract management and eventually General Manager of a retail location.
Fortunately for us, the bid and contract side is where he has found the most satisfaction. He is currently our Senior Project Manager based in our Austin office.
Don enjoys playing golf and taking pictures of landscapes and still-life images.
