Everybody knows Nava, and those that don’t have heard about his pristine reputation. He is not afraid of hard work and not afraid to share the spotlight of success.
In fact, it’s part of the company culture to help others thrive. During the difficult ups and downs of the restaurant industry, particularly recently with the impacts of COVID-19, his company has not only survived, but its brands have continued to grow and succeed through perseverance, tenacity and that special “Kind” touch that make his brands — in multiple environments including airports, street side, fine dining and quick service — and each dining experience within them so memorable.
Through the pandemic, Nava’s primary focus was to help and support others. To put those who operate and support his restaurants first. He stayed in contact with his team and stepped in when a hand was needed. He promised and has executed on donating thousands of meals to first responders, essential workers and those in need since March 2020 and continues to do so. He has also even been there to support competitors in their time of need, instead of turning a cold shoulder.
The ability to stay versatile and diversify the business has also served as a secret recipe to Nava’s success, making him a true Titan in the industry. Staying ahead of the curve and having the keen insight to navigate advances and changes in the industry has also helped Nava stand out and continue to see success across all his company’s brands.
