Joey's Management Team
Joe, with his wife, Theresa, opened the very first Joey's Seafood Restaurant in 1985; their first foray into the seafood restaurant business. Always the visionary, Joe is a charismatic leader who consistently develops new strategies to grow and expand the Joey's franchise business. Today, with more than 38 years of experience, and 40 Joey's locations in Canada, Joe remains very "hands-on" in overseeing the company. Joe also believes strongly in giving back to the community in which he achieved success. His philanthropic endeavors go far beyond Joey's.
