He first started in management at the age of 18 as a manager for Minyards food stores in Dallas, Texas. Five years later, he successfully transitioned into food and beverage management when he became an assistant restaurant manager for Embassy Suites Hotels in Irving, Texas. He has also served as a general manager for national chain restaurants including Steak & Ale, Olive Garden, and Tony Roma's.

    As the food and beverage manager for the Mount Roberts Tramway, Mr. Collier creates and maintains menus that attract cruise ship passengers, as well as residents of Juneau.
