Freddie Shows speaks to Kiwanis Club, Tuesday, April 25

Freddie Shows, general manager and part-owner of Johnny’s Pizza, spoke to the Kiwanis club Tuesday, April 25, 2017. Shows has been self-employed since the age of 19. He has also been a preacher at the Jonesboro Church of Christ for 35 years. He opened a saw shop in Winnfield in 1985, an outsider from Jonesboro. After closing the saw shop he built several houses, built cabinets, and drove a truck. The Winnfield Johnny’s Pizza is store #4 for Shows and his partners. The others are in Jonesboro, Pineville and Alexandria. The Winnfield franchise was purchased at the same time as the Jonesboro franchise 6 ½ years ago so it has been in the works for a while. However, after Jonesboro they put in at Pineville and Alexandria because they thought there would be more business in a bigger place.
