James Bodenstedt '96

President/CEO of MUY Companies

How did your time at UTSA best prepare you for your career?

“UTSA has a special place in my heart as education is key in today’s world. It encourages work ethic, time management, strategy building and provides tools which allow one to build on their individual dreams. UTSA taught me all of these things and allowed me to build on assets I had already began forming in my time spent working before I attended college. Today, with the mentoring of many, MUY! is proud to operate over 750 Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Wendy’s restaurants and is one of the largest privately-owned franchise restaurant companies in the U.S.”
