The Round Rock Chamber Ambassador Program provides an opportunity for motivated, enthusiastic, and articulated businesspeople to represent the Chamber at functions and events across the community. This month’s Ambassador Spotlight is on Nichole Francis.
Nichole was born and raised in Bryan/College Station and graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor’s in Marketing. Upon graduation, she was fortunate enough to join the Round Rock Express front office team as their seasonal intern where she managed sponsorships and ballpark entertainment. Little did she know that this opportunity would transition her from baseball to beef. Nichole has been with Nolan Ryan Brands for the past 11 years playing a crucial role in developing the marketing department to support both Nolan Ryan Beef and Goodstock by Nolan Ryan. In 2021, she transitioned into a new area of the company as the Direct-to-Consumer Business Manager for Goodstock by Nolan Ryan overseeing the marketing and operations of their local butcher shop as well as e-commerce program. Working alongside Nolan, his family and the staff within her organization for the past 12 years has strengthened her work ethic and dedication to deliver the best in everything she does.
At Goodstock by Nolan Ryan you’ll find our hand selected craft beef- prepared to order by our in-house butcher, as well as specialty provisions to complement any cut and a curated selection of unique wares for every occasion.
After taking on this new role, Nichole found it a perfect fit to become an Ambassador with the Round Rock Chamber. Since coming on board in March of 2022, she has enjoyed spending time, getting to know her fellow Ambassadors as well as meeting new businesses around the community through various events. She looks forward to continued growth within the organization and the ability to deepen bonds with the community that is so vital to the growth and success of Round Rock.
When Nichole is not around the butcher shop, she enjoys exploring all that Round Rock and the surrounding areas have to offer. From catching a Round Rock Express baseball game, attending amazing concerts, hiking numerous trails, and locating the best restaurants around town, she is game for it all!
