He worked for Cheddar's in several rolls including General Manager and in several states until 1999.  Andy then left the restaurant business to be a Director of Food & Beverage for Radisson Hotel in Hampton, Virginia.  In 1993 he took a role as the Director of Operations for Q’s Restaurant Group, LLC operating Cheddar’s Casual Café restaurants in the Tampa, Florida market.  In 2007 he created 3 C's Catering as a division of Q's.  In 2011 3 C's Catering became its own LLC and in 2015 Andy and his wife bought out the owner of Q's to become the owners and operators of 3 C's Catering, LLC..
