Joe Williams isn’t your average Joe when he visits a restaurant.
Williams, vice president for brand at Carlos O’Kelly’s, can’t help but scrutinize the decor, the service, the presentation, the food. It’s a habit that carries over from his job.
He’s in the midst of rebranding the more than 30-year-old Wichita-based Mexican food chain to keep it current with restaurant trends.
Williams, 45, is married to Kristey Williams, who is currently serving as mayor of Augusta. They have four children.
