Victoria Jones, a 40-year-old mother of two in San Diego, California, is poised to leverage her passions and talents to bring new enrichment opportunities to children in her community. With a background in education and a deep love for teaching, her next chapter is simmering at Sticky Fingers Cooking®.
For 16 years, Victoria dedicated herself to public and private education, wearing multiple hats as a teacher, coach, and administrator. Her experience instilled in her a deep affection for working with young minds and a desire to create fresh learning experiences for children. But she was ready to set out on her own and, knowing the work involved in starting a business from scratch as well as the high failure rate of small businesses during their first 5 years, she was set on buying a franchise. So, in October 2023, Victoria attended the Franchise Expo at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, California.
Victoria recalls, “After speaking with a few franchise brands, I found the Sticky Fingers Cooking® booth and immediately knew there was great potential for a partnership! After 30 days of prayer, sharing my excitement with family and friends, and countless emails between the corporate team and myself, I knew that this business model and business purpose was for me!”
Victoria purchased a territory in San Diego and underwent training at Sticky Fingers Cooking headquarters in Denver in early 2024. Soon, she’ll open her business and begin offering classes to local children. It’s a smart move – San Diego County serves nearly half a million students across 780 schools, making it an ideal location for enrichment classes.
An avid cook herself, Victoria found a natural connection with Sticky Fingers Cooking. Their family places great importance on cooking and sharing meals, managing to do so 3-4 times a week. And as a mother of two daughters aged 11 and 12, one of whom has a physical disability, Victoria was drawn to the company’s commitment to creating inclusive learning environments.
Erin Fletter, the CEO and founder of Sticky Fingers Cooking, is thrilled to welcome Victoria as a new franchise owner. Erin says, “I grew up in North County San Diego, specifically Encinitas, and I'm thrilled and honored to welcome Victoria to our team. She’s a capable and passionate business leader and just the person to bring SFC to life in my beloved hometown!”
