Daniel Johnson

Student CEO of La Salle University 

(Leading the way at Saxbys UPenn)

Spring 2021

Meet Daniel! He's studying Finance & Marketing at La Salle University. While our cafe is temporarily closed at La Salle, Daniel is taking charge at Saxbys at University of Pennsylvania. Shoutout to Daniel for wanting to Make Life Better wherever he is! Dan's absolute favorite Saxbys drink is the Daily Grind! 

Over a quick Cold Brew Break, we caught up with Daniel to learn more about how it's going as Student CEO:

What got you interested in the Student CEO role at Saxbys?

I got interested in the Student CEO role because I have a passion for coffee and I love to interact with guests. I have always been entrepreneurial-minded and after hearing some of the positive experiences that current team members were having at Saxbys, I knew I had to get involved. I love a good challenge and keeping busy, and this provides me the perfect opportunity to be an entrepreneur while serving up fantastic coffee, sandwiches, and more.

What is your favorite part about the role?

My favorite part of the role is giving the monthly Profit and Loss presentation! Being a finance major, I love diving into the specifics and trying to find new ways to operate more efficiently. 

What's next? 

My dream after graduating/Saxbys is to go into real estate financing and development with the goal of opening and running my own firm one day. I also wish to begin training for Iron Man competitions on the side!
