In 2010, after working in the corporate world for 28 years, Bill Oglesby found himself at a fork in the road. He could continue on the path he was on or pursue his goal of owning his own business. He opted for the entrepreneurial route.

“At that time, I started looking to see what businesses were for sale and I saw JC’s pop up,” Oglesby said. “They came up at a perfect time. I had already figured out what I was looking for and when JC’s came in, I knew that was the one.”

Oglesby bought three JC’s Hamburger House locations in 2010, one in Plano which was the original location established in 1999, one in Allen and one in McKinney. The McKinney location was located at Hwy. 75 and Virginia Pkwy., but Oglesby decided to move it to 6840 Virginia Parkway, Ste. 100, n in 2013.

“I wanted more visibility. So, we looked around and this (location) has people coming by to go to the grocery store, it is right across from Adriatica (Village), and it’s on a main road.”

Oglesby underwent a training period in 2010, but he focused most of his time learning overall operations.

“It was part of our contract that I would retain all the employees because I value them,” the business owner said. “They were the ones that knew the details. I was never going to learn 10 years of how to operate a kitchen in a week or a month.”

All their burgers are hand-packed and made fresh daily using USDA choice chuck, he said.

Oglesby is happy with this location and has signed a 15-year lease, he said.

“At the end of that, if I’m still kicking, we’ll sign another one,” he said.
