John fell in love with Mexican cuisine in the mid-90s when the medical device company he worked for transferred him to San Francisco. Taking a page from a few start-ups in the Bay Area, he and co-founders Adam Liebman and Gregg Harris thought that combining the most delicious recipes from all over the world and the portable, yummy tortilla would take Mexican fare to a new level of popularity. They opened the first Boloco locationat the Berklee College of Music in Boston on February 24, 1997. For many years they described their main offerings as Globally Inspired Burritos… today its simply Modern Mexican. And today, nearly 25 years later, Pepper still eats 2 meals a day at Boloco whenever possible.
Pepper’s main focus has always been on the people who work at Boloco and in the restaurant industry. His goal has always been to build a healthy, responsibly profitable business while paying employees the highest wages in the industry.
Pepper graduated from Dartmouth College in 1991 and received his MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College in 1997.
