One of the owners, Teo Dominguez, immigrated to the US in the early 1990s. His first job was washing dishes at the Duck Brand. He worked his way up to cook prep, then cook, then restaurant manager. He took a break from the food service industry to begin his own construction company. When he was approached about buying the Duck Brand in 2012 he relished the opportunity to purchase the business with other family members and never looked back.
In his spare time Teo spends time with his family and fishing. He is also a fan of the Seattle Sounders.
