Cape Town, South Africa-December 14, 2018
Endeavor announced today that Joe DeLoss, Founder & CEO of Hot Chicken Takeover, was selected into the Endeavor Global network at the 84th International Selection Panel (ISP). Joe was selected into Endeavor by a panel of global business leaders including: Mike Bach (USA), Sean Petersen (USA), Barry Swartzberg (South Africa), Barry Salzman (South Africa), Eric Perez Grovas (Mexico), and Weyinmi Popo (UK).
Hot Chicken Takeover (HCT) is a fast casual restaurant chain serving delicious fried chicken in an environment reminiscent of a family reunion. HCT currently operates three restaurants across Columbus, Ohio, with plans to expand regionally next year. HCT’s unique product and service experience are powered by a significant HR innovation: providing supportive employment to motivated adults impacted by homelessness, incarceration, and other circumstances linked to poverty.
At the Cape Town ISP, panelists from around the world interviewed entrepreneur candidates about their businesses, evaluating them on their potential for high-impact growth, and then deliberated on which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Once selected, Endeavor Entrepreneurs gain access to an unparalleled global network of business leaders, entrepreneurs, & investors who volunteer to mentor entrepreneurs as they face challenges with rapid growth.
Joe DeLoss joins the global Endeavor network through the regional Endeavor affiliate office in Louisville, Kentucky. Joe is the 12th entrepreneur to be selected into Endeavor from the region, joining Rivera Group (Joey Rivera, Ph.D), Red e App (Jonathan Erwin & Patrick Goodman), El Toro (Stacy Griggs), SkuVault (Andy Eastes & Slav Ivanyuk), Edj Analytics (Sean O’Leary), Handle (Kyle Green), MXD Process (Mark Franco), Rabbit Hole Distillery (Kaveh Zamanian), and LISNR (Rodney Williams).
“Acceptance into Endeavor is a mammoth accomplishment for HCT and I. We know we will rely heavily on the wisdom of the network as we scale. And we’re eager to contribute back as we learn through the process.” –Joe DeLoss
