Danny Steppling is a millennial entrepreneur, business and life consultant and multi-unit franchisee. A recognized authority in the QSR industry, Mr. Steppling has been published in books and websites (most noticeably forbes.com) for his success and has been awarded numerous achievements.
After graduating from UCF with a marketing degree, Steppling purchased two failing Subway restaurants with his brother, Josh. Having extensive experience in the industry, the two brothers quickly cleaned up the operation and turned around the stores’ crippling reputation. The next several months resulted in massive sales increases. This coupled with the overflow of positive customer reviews and comments caught the eye of many people in the company.
Eventually this success would lead to him being named “Rookie of the Year,” being given numerous community service awards, and getting elected as the youngest member on his company’s South Florida Advertising Board. In July 2016, Forbes reached out to Mr. Steppling and his brother to gain their insights on millennials and how to succeed with this demographic in business. He is now responsible for overseeing 11 Subway restaurants in total.
He also is a seasoned online sales professional. When he first started, he had $0 in revenue for almost a whole month. That’s when he decided to invest his time and resources into learn how to properly sell online. After a months worth of webinars, books and online courses, he decided to try his luck again. This time, hundreds of his products sold out – in nine days.
In his mission to improve the lives of millions, Steppling has made a commitment to supporting his local community and has donated more than 10,000 meals throughout his hometown. Connecting with your local community is one of the main practices he preaches as the benefits are ultimately endless.
Steppling is also very passionate about health and fitness. He’s a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist. He currently resides in sunny South Florida.
