Andrew Miller

District Manager

 

What led you to a job at THCR?

I worked in a coffee stand at EWU beginning in 1990.  During my time at EWU, Thomas opened North Town and Thomas Hammer Coffee became a go to place for me to study.  Upon graduating, I traveled to West Point, New York to open a small coffee shop on campus.  The restaurant business stole me away for quite some time, but always had a passion for The Bean.  Watching THCR expand over the last few years had me keeping an eye out for opportunities that I could help contribute to the success of THCR’s growth and I began as a District Manager in October 2019.
