SUN – SAT 7am to 2pm
Hello Oviedo Community, I am Larry Walker from Falls Church, Virginia. Go Washington Football Team! My wife and I have three awesome children who range in age from 11 to 21. I’m so proud of all my kids, who themselves have overcome so much. My oldest son is in the Army and my two youngest children have a rare genetic neuromuscular condition. After graduating from Ferrum College, I worked in a management program with Domino's Pizza. The franchise owner I worked for sold his stores in Virginia and bought all of the Orlando locations. He asked me to relocate with him to run one of his stores, and that is what first brought me to the Orlando area, 24 years ago. readable English.
Eventually, I had the opportunity to join Chipotle Mexican Grill, as a General Manager and became the first Restaurateur in the Orlando Market. I worked for Chipotle for 15 years, until June of 2019. It was during that time, on January 31st, 2012 that I was riding my Harley and was hit by a drunk driver. The accident caused me to flatline at the scene, on the way to the hospital, and again at the hospital, when it took almost 5 minutes to revive me. I was in a coma and had several life-threatening injuries. The doctor said I had a 5% chance of surviving and if I did, I might not walk again. Through prayer and determination, and after several months in the hospital, I was walking again and finally able to return home. God works in mysterious ways. English.
God works in mysterious ways. This was such a scary and difficult time for me and my family, but God used it to redeem many areas of my life, including my marriage. After recovering from my accident, I had the opportunity to continue to learn and grow as a manager with Chipotle for several more years. Eventually though, I knew I needed a change – a rejuvenation. Leaving the company, I spent some much-needed time with family. During this time, I applied for a position with Maple Street Biscuit Company, not even knowing what it was or had the food. During the interview process, I was hooked. A company with a mission to help people, serve others, and be a part of the community and one that serves comfort food with a modern twist is right up my alley! I feel blessed to be given this opportunity to be a Community Leader in Oviedo, once again, God works in mysterious ways, I feel there was divine intervention involved.
