Area Rep – North Florida
Meet Danny Chichester, your Area Representative for Farm Stores in North Florida.
Danny Chichester earned a Business Degree from Florida State University in 1990 and has resided in Tallahassee ever since.
At 23 years old he became the owner and operator of the three Tallahassee locations for Miami Subs Grill. At the time he was the youngest franchisee in Miami Subs Grill 40-year history. One of his Tallahassee Miami Subs Grill locations was the #1 store in sales for the company for 8 straight years. Transitioning from the hospitality industry to the insurance industry, Chichester has built his career around great relationships, impeccable service, and quality of life for his professional team and family.
Danny grew up in Coral Springs, Florida, where his family was a regular customer of their local Farm Stores. Like many of the newest members of the Farms Stores Team, Covid 19 was the initial spark that led to Chichester’s interest to research opportunities with Farm Stores Corporation. He is proud to join the Farm Stores Franchising team as the boots on the ground in North Florida.
