Driver Spotlight: Brandon Thurmond

From driver to virtual maverick

“…a little hard work and dedication can move you up in the company.”

How did you get started at Bite Squad?

I worked for Chef Shuttle in Little Rock, which was acquired by Bite Squad, and I transitioned to becoming a full-time driver for the catering team. Next, I earned the position of Tablet Tech, and a few months after getting the position down, I transitioned over to lead driver. At the end of 2018, I was asked if I was interested in a new position called Virtual Maverick, and I gladly accepted it. So I oversee activities in the markets that I’m assigned to that don’t have physical offices.

What do you like most about working for Bite Squad?

What I like most about working for Bite Squad is learning about the city I live in. I’m not from here, and getting to drive around and see the different parts of town helped me to understand my way around.

What has been your best memory delivering for Bite Squad?

My best memory was when my boss gave me a printed review of a customer survey. It stated that I delivered their food promptly and hot, and that I provided a friendly new-customer experience.

What do you like to do for fun when you’re not working?

I’m a simple person. I like to work out, read and cook. I like to keep to myself and hang out  with my daughter.

What are your tips to fellow Squadron drivers?

Some tips I would give to my fellow drivers is to be patient, drive safely, don’t rush and most of all, have fun. It’s a simple task to pick up food and and drop it off. Hard work pays off and just like myself, a little hard work and dedication can move you up in the company.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I’m enjoying my experience while working with Bite Squad. Stay committed to your job(s) and the sky’s the limit. Thank you for the opportunity, BiteSquad for letting my light shine.
