Management

Meet Jay Cipra. He started the whole Kick's thing.

Why? Because he loves chicken almost as much as he loves his family. His license plate says "Chicken Man", his ring tone plays the "Chicken Dance", his text tone crows "Cock-A-Doodle-Doo", and he offers up gummy chicken feet to all who enter his office. Yeah, the man loves chicken. (To be fair, pictures of his family grace his office and are plentiful on his phone.)

He got his degree in Marketing and Finance from the University of Denver (not a lot of chickens around the business school, but whatever). Jay is also president and CEO of The Broaster Company, another business built on chicken. Before his 10 years at Broaster he focused on building his career with leadership roles in sales, marketing & finance. His favorite way to eat chicken? Broasted using the Genuine Broaster® Chicken method and served with waffles.
