After working in the franchise and restaurant industry for 16 years Doug

Today, Pickleman’s has 22 locations and counting, three in Columbia, MO,

Pickleman’s focuses above all on using the highest
quality product and creating profound and unique flavor profiles people
love. Offering a wide array of all natural products with the freshest
ingredients gives our Toasted Sandwiches, Pizzas, Soups, Salads and
Desserts a quality that sets us apart. Our Delivery and Catering
services allow us to serve large groups, cater events, and provide you
with our superior service at your door.

Doug has plans to expand the Pickleman’s franchise
and share his passion for high quality food with the world. His goal is
to establish and continue to develop his own brand and someday be
successful enough to spend lots of time with two wonderful children,
Jack and Audrey.
