This led to project management and prototype development for a number of national chains such as Houlihan’s, Applebee’s, Pizza Hut, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Einstein Brother’s Bagels, Boston Market, The Gap, Old Navy and many more. 

Paul sat for and passed the PE exam and became a licensed PE in Texas in 2007. He worked for Hoss & Brown Engineers as the national account manager for QuikTrip since 2008.
