Scott Butts and Karen Butts are currently the franchise partners in the
state of Kentucky. They bring a combined total of 28 years of restaurant
experience to their role as hospitality recruiters. Scott began his career
at sixteen years old as an employee with Chick-fil-A. Scott was with Lone
Star Steakhouse for eleven years where he quickly moved through the ranks where he became a District Manager overseeing nine stores. Scott began recruiting in 2005 fulfilling his lifelong dream of owning his own business.

Scott's Industry success has been a natural backdrop for his current success. Karen began her restaurant career with Lone Star Steakhouse where she was promoted into a Service Manager position. Karen later assisted in multiple stores throughout the Cincinnati market before coming on board with Gecko Hospitality. Her knowledge of the restaurant industry combined with being
born and raised in Kentucky allows her to bring a unique perspective to the market and makes a perfect recipe for success.
The majority of their free time is spent with their daughters Kaitlyn and
Ashley, who are very active in both soccer and basketball. As a family,
they are huge UK fans and enjoy watching their CATS play any chance they have.
