Meet the Team
Born and raised in greater Columbus, Ron Jordan grew up in a family of self-made entrepreneurs. Continuing the family tradition of successful entrepreneurship has become synonymous with the Jordan name. Spending time around the hospitality industry has that effect on a person. Hard work, entrepreneurship, and hospitality all make up a way-of-life that fuels Ron’s leadership of Jordan Hospitality Group.
Approaching his ten-year anniversary as CEO of Jordan Hospitality Group, Ron has successfully grown the portfolio of restaurants; including a national QSR brand and Hen Quarter, with several other exciting concepts on the horizon. Ron previously spent time as the VP of Retail for the partner company, Thompson Hospitality—the largest minority-owned food and facilities management company in the U.S. He’s garnered awards from Smart Columbus, Columbus Monthly, Central Ohio Honors, and more.
Ron participates in speaking engagements yearly throughout Ohio. Involved with numerous charities, one of his favorites is the Jordan Family Scholarship. Mentoring student-athletes in leadership and showing them how to tie athletic achievement with career and leadership development is one of Ron’s passions.
Ron and his wife, Dawn, have four daughters and live in New Albany, Ohio. As a foodie, Ron enjoys trying new restaurants and sampling local fare wherever his travels take him. One of his favorite pairings is a good cigar and a great scotch.
