Gary M. Johnson Vice-Chairman Gary Johnson is an owner, officer and member of the Macayo Restaurant Group. Under Gary and his father's guidance, the Johnson family businesses have grown from a small restaurant with less than thirty-five seats in 1946 to combined businesses in multiple states that have over $100 million in revenue. Gary was responsible for the business formation of each of the companies, and currently oversees the operation of numerous family owned businesses. He is also directly responsible for the financial concerns of all the companies, and is President of the manufacturing facility and the Las Vegas operation. The combined companies employ approximately 2,000 individuals, working in casual dining Mexican restaurants, a manufacturing facility, a small wares and equipment retailer and real estate companies that manage properties that lease to the family owned businesses and outside unrelated businesses. Under Gary's direction, the family has built a large real estate portfolio comprised of retail shopping centers and office buildings. The manufacturing facilities sell products to national grocery stores across the southwestern United States under the Macayo label. They also develop and produce ingredient products in the Hispanic food segment for some of the largest multinational corporations. As President of the manufacturing facility Gary introduced processing improvements that maximized per unit profit and has grown revenue over 14% a year. Additionally, Gary and his sons operate a 1,000 acre farm in southeastern Arizona that grows for the manufacturing facility and other outside customers. They are currently developing organic foods for the Hispanic international sales. The Macayo Restaurant Group has been recognized by numerous professional organizations. They have received the ACE Award for three years running, most recently for being the 37th largest privately held business in Arizona. Gary has served on many community boards such as the Phoenix Art Museum Board of Trustees, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Arthritis Foundation Board of Directors. He also served on advisory boards such as Kemper Insurance. Gary joint-ventured with then Phoenix Mayor Terry Goddard and the Hispanic Chamber to create and operate one of the largest city sponsored ethnic festivals, "The Cinco De Mayo Fiesta".
