Meet Randy

Randy Jackson was born in Itta Bena, Mississippi and attended Leflore County high school where he graduated as Valedictorian of his high school class.

Randy attended Mississippi Valley State University’s Upward Bound Program and received several awards for academic achievements. After initially pursuing a degree in Computer Science at JSU, he prayerfully accepted his calling to become an entrepreneur.


"Armed with prayer, a vision, and a work ethic, I realized that I was a man of flexible gifts and talents. I started my journey to becoming an entrepreneur by managing several different businesses. I have a wealth of management and leadership experience. I have managed a Great American Cookie Company, Shoe Department, Tuxedo Junction, PayLess Shoe Source, Kay Bee Toys, and a Jitney Jungle. My goal with managing all of these different businesses was to provide excellent customer service, a good product, a clean and friendly environment, and a reasonably priced item. We had to WOW our customers. I received several Manager Of The Year awards, leadership awards, highest sales increase, and visual merchandising awards."

"My journey to becoming a business owner happened in 2004 when I purchased my first franchise, which was a Wetzel’s Pretzels. The knowledge and experience I gained from this franchise, allowed me to open up several other businesses. I have owned a convenience store called Sunrise Express at Northpark Mall and a gift shop called the Riverboat Shop in downtown Jackson for eight years."

"Currently, I am the Co-Owner and Director of Operations for Twisted Pretzel, Dippin' Dots of Central Mississippi, Card My Yard, and 99 Spoons, which is a soft serve vending machine located at Northpark Mall, Jackson State University, and Memorial Stadium."

"My true love and passion is GOD and my family. My life motto is based upon the words of an inspiration song composed in the 1930s by Alma Bazel Androzzo and sung by Mahalia Jackson that says, ”If I can help someone as I pass along…if I can cheer someone with a word or song… if I can show someone how they are traveling wrong…then my living will not be in vain.” "

Randy is married to the beautiful Temekia Felton-Jackson and is the proud father of Kelsey, Caleb, Nadia, and Tesni Jackson.
