Jordan Doepke | CEO | Green District
Jordan Doepke left the insurance business to co-found Green District Salads in Louisville, Kentucky with childhood friend Chris Furlow, inspired to improve lives and help people live healthier. Doepke is chief executive officer for the rapidly growing chopped salad concept, overseeing the brand’s strategic direction, restaurant operations, and corporate partnerships. His passion is to put people first, ensuring Green District not only serves fresh, high-quality food, but also provides a positive impact for its customers, employees and communities. With nine locations currently operating in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, Green District has plans to expand to 30 units nationally by the end of 2022, as part of a major expansion plan partially funded through an investment from Louisville-based The Castellan Group, with a goal of reaching $100 million in revenue in 2026.
