Company Information


After climbing the “Golden Arches,” Covelli Enterprises adheres to a core philosophy: Treat employees and customers with respect and dignity; give back.

The décor is different and so are the menus. But the underlying philosophy and the operating practices of all restaurants that are part of Covelli Enterprises are the same today as they were in 1959 when the late Albert Covelli opened the first McDonald’s Restaurant in Warren, Ohio.


In addition to Panera Bread restaurants, Covelli Enterprises also owns O’Charley’s Restaurants and Dairy Queen stores. While the food offerings at these three restaurants are all different, the basic operating premise at all three is the same: treat customers and employees with total dignity and respect.


Giving back has become critical to the Covelli Enterprise mission. Each year, led by Sam Covelli, Covelli Enterprises donates millions of dollars in cash or food to hundreds of charitable organizations from those working to help people with autism to groups fighting for an end to homelessness. Veterans organizations, urban leagues, scholarship funds, hospitals, athletic organizations, animal rights groups and countless others have received donations from Covelli.

Sam Covelli said he is incredibly humble and grateful to be able to contribute. “I view it as an honor to be able to help others,” Sam Covelli said. “My father taught us that.”

Referring to a quote that former President John F. Kennedy borrowed from the Bible, Sam Covelli said, “’For of those to whom much is given, much is required.”

Sam Covelli said, “I have been given so much and am so fortunate on so many levels and I never forget that.”


Covelli Enterprises works to promote staffers to managers, if they are interested, and also ensures that employees are well-trained.

Another critical component of the Covelli management practice is to invest a great deal in employee training. “We have found that our people really value what they learn. Look at me, I am still using what I learned 40-plus years ago as a McDonald’s employee. Plus, it enables them to perform their jobs confidently and to enjoy their work more,” Covelli said.

Covelli also works to ensure that all restaurants are properly staffed so that no workers have too much to do and become exhausted. “We always want to do the right thing for our employees and I think we have succeeded with that,” Sam Covelli said. “We encourage our employees to always be telling us how we can improve.”

Covelli said some of the best ideas for changes or improvements originate with employees.

“They’re closest to the customers and to our products and we really value what they have to say,” Sam Covelli said.
