Balancing Work and Marriage When Your Partner is Your Spouse (with Brad & Kristy Allen)

June 19th, 2019

When your spouse is your business partner, how do you balance work and marriage and be successful at both? How do you protect and care for your relationship apart from the business?

On this episode, Brad & Kristy describe how they work together to keep their businesses prosperous and their family life flourishing through the daily challenges and opportunities of working side by side. Kristy also shares some valuable insight regarding how, as a single mom before meeting Brad, she managed her business and cared for her young daughters.



Brad and Kristy Allen own and operate multiple McDonald’s restaurants in Arkansas.  Brad and Kristy have been in this business for 23 years and believe that the McDonald’s training and expectations have had a very positive influence on the development of their values.

Brad and Kristy have six children and two grand-children and place great importance on family. 

Kristy is on the Board of Directors for the Ronald McDonald House.  They both enjoy donating to RMH, along with helping the community and others with their charitable donations, time and abilities by getting personally involved.
