Jeff’s upbringing helped to instill a passion in him for dining and hospitality at a young age. For over forty years, his father Bruce owned and operated the beloved local restaurant Snooky’s. Jeff grew up in that atmosphere, and later on, he owned his own restaurant, Archibald’s, for over five years.

Under Jeff’s leadership, EDS has experienced tremendous growth and transformation. In 2012, Jeff oversaw the development and construction of our two large-scale dining facilities on the Statesboro Campus. His expertise helped reshape dining’s portfolio of offerings in Savannah as the University grew its footprint.

Jeff’s commitment to quality food and excellent customer service is evident in each dining location. The many skilled, knowledgeable professionals of EDS support Every Eagle at Georgia Southern.
