Joe Profit/Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives 4th District
After college, Joe Profit was selected in the first round of the 1971 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. Due to a season-ending knee injury suffered in his first game in the NFL, Joe eventually retired his cleats, but the lessons he learned on the football field were invaluable.
Lessons regarding perseverance, discipline, and teamwork on the football field are partly the reasons he is recognized as one of the most prominent small businessmen in America. As a successful businessman, his company, Gourmet Profit, Inc., owned Burger King Franchises in Atlanta. Joe was the first African-American to own a franchise for International House of Pancakes (IHOP) in the state of Georgia. He is the founder and CEO of a $100 million international multimedia firm, Communications International Corporation. It is ranked by INC. 500 Magazine as one of the fastest growing privately-held companies in America for three consecutive years. Joe contributes to the nation’s economic engine by providing over 800 jobs to people in 37 states and nine countries.
Today, former Atlanta Falcon and successful businessman Joe Profit is on the November ballot for U.S. Congress for Georgia’s 4th Congressional District.
