Joe DeLoss is a serial entrepreneur focused on building transformational brands for transformational people.

He’s spent nearly two decades building sustainable businesses that provide meaningful employment opportunities for those impacted by incarceration, homelessness, and addiction. His efforts have been highlighted by The Today Show, Forbes, Harvard Business School, Politico, The Rachael Ray Show and many others.

His most recent success, Hot Chicken Takeover, is a fast-casual restaurant chain taking over the Midwest. The business earned critical acclaim as a break-out brand in the segment and created hundreds of meaningful work opportunities in the region under Joe’s leadership. HCT also boasted retention rates three times better than its industry, creating continuity for the team and guests alike. The key? Joe designed HR processes that deeply invested in his team’s personal development, something uncharacteristic of most entry-level work environments. Joe believes investments in a person’s personal stability will always yield professional success.

Joe’s dedication to supportive employment, social entrepreneurship, and vulnerable leadership has allowed him to impact the lives of thousands of people. Following the recent acquisition of Hot Chicken Takeover, Joe’s now set his sights on new ventures and seizing any opportunity he can get to inspire other entrepreneurs and business leaders to make sustainable impact integral to their organizations future. Joe honors this pursuit as an advisor, investor, and occasionally, as a reluctant consultant.
