EP 39 | Ford Tipps | Sales Executive, Toast, Inc.
Episode 39 is here! Ford Tipps is a native of Muscle Shoals and a seasoned sales professional. Now with Toast, Inc. Ford is helping restaurant owners to have all of the tools and systems needed to be more efficient and provide a great experience for their customers. By combining powerful cloud-based software, restaurant-grade hardware, and transparent payment processing all in one place, Toast allows you to get back to what you do best.
During the episode, I test Ford’s knowledge of music as I debut a modified version of Name That Tune. Additionally, we stepped through an illustrative display of his love of Lord of the Rings and where it was filmed in New Zealand. It was a fun and easy conversation. After graduating from UNA, his professional life took him away from North Alabama, in which he had some great experiences, before getting married and returning to “Our Town”.
