Meet Jeff Image

We’d like you to meet an integral member of our HuHot team, Jeff Martin. Jeff is our Chief Operating Officer and has been with HuHot since 2010. He was recently highlighted in Restaurant Business magazine and in Food & Drink  sharing his thoughts and insights growing a successful restaurant franchise.

Jeff is not only a smart and hardworking executive with over 35 years in the restaurant industry, he’s also just a cool guy. We took a few moments from his busy schedule to ask him some very important questions:

What’s your favorite sauce combo at HuHot? Black Thai Peanut with Kung Pao…Yow!

Your HuHot plate will ALWAYS have this on it: Mushrooms, onions, and cilantro.

Where did you grow up? Billings, MT.

If you could get on a plane and go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go? Alone: Alaska. With my wife: Italy. With my whole family: Tahiti.

What do you like the most about your job? Two things: 1) The variety it provides with Franchising, our Operating Company, Creative and Purchasing.  2) The great people that I get to work with every day.

Favorite beer? Odell’s 90 Shilling and Black Butte Porter (I just couldn’t pick one!)

Favorite book? Shogun or any novel by James Clavell.
