Born in Miami, David Adir moved across the country to pursue an entrepreneurial venture in the midst of a recession. Adir is CEO and co-founder of The Carving Board, a company he co-founded alongside his brother, Yoav. The Carving Board is a fast-casual restaurant that provides unique and innovative comfort food sandwiches of the highest quality. The company began in 2012 as a two-man operation, with David as the cook and his brother as the cashier, and has now become a million-dollar business with continued growth. Headquartered in Tarzana, Calif., the brand began franchising in 2016 and has since grown to five locations currently operating, with more locations in various stages of development. Offering the highest-quality ingredients at a reasonable price, The Carving Board menu extends beyond sandwiches and incorporates freshly baked bread and cookies, in-house roasted turkey, as well as natural-style potato chips made to order. Anticipating growth beyond 15 locations by 2018, the brand offers franchise business opportunities across the globe.
