How to Be a Pro at Quick Service

A new organization is trying to help professional athletes get involved with franchising.

Angelo Crowell is a big man. At 6 feet 1 inch tall and about 250 pounds, you might take the broad-shouldered 29-year-old for a football player.

You probably wouldn’t pin him as the perfect restaurant franchisee.

With the first presumption, you’d be right. Crowell played linebacker in the NFL for the Buffalo Bills, who drafted him in 2003, and later for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is now a free agent who says he keeps himself in game shape in case he gets another opportunity to play.

“I’d rather be ready than not ready,” he says.
