Who is behind OCB?
OnCampus Brands was founded by Jim Gregory. From 2012 through Spring 2016, Jim was responsible for the non-traditional channel of Steak n Shake restaurants. His experience in non-trad restaurants and retail services stretches back to 1990. Jim conceived our vision of bringing superior brand offerings to college campuses: brands that resonate with students; brands that complement the unique cultures of their schools; brands that are committed to grow and support their operations in higher education. So, we spent a few months signing up "charter" clients, building the first on-campus retail database, and gathering a network of our favorite ops, design and construction folks. By then it was Fall Semester 2016 and time to get back to school!
