Meet Your 

Community Leader 

Ethan Vagnier


I was raised in the small town of Maryville, Tennessee by a teacher and the president of a mental health institution. From a young age, I had a love and a passion for people. In my adolescent years, I developed a passion for cooking as a result of being so picky. I attended East Tennessee State University after high school, and I graduated with a sociology and history degree. After graduating college, I assisted in developing a rapidly growing e-commerce company. During my time at the warehouse, I quickly moved up to a position of leadership and enjoying training new hires. After several years of growing with the company, I realized that I needed more interpersonal connections and sought a complete career change. I responded to an ad on Indeed looking for an Associate Community Leader at the Sherrill Hill store. After interviewing with Adam Luttrell and seeing the passion and joy he derived from the company, I knew this was the place for me. Finally, I could cultivate my love for people, drive to build others up, and lifelong passion for food.

Initially, the job of ACL had already been fulfilled, but I decided to take any position I could with the company. For the first few months, I made biscuits and washed dishes. From there I expressed interest in growing and learning more and was mentored by Adam and others in the company. From there I became the Assistant Community Leader and continued to grow and develop a like-minded team. When the position of Community Leader opened above me, I saw it as the perfect opportunity to achieve a lifelong goal of running a restaurant.

Recently, I purchased my first home and have been renovating it for the last 3 years. I live with two American Bulldogs, a ball python, and a cute cat named Sasha. The co-parent to these adorable fur babies is my fiancé, Rachel. During my free time, I enjoy collecting minerals, building firearms, and cooking. I love the journey that Maple Street Biscuit Company has taken me on and look forward to what’s to come.

Help people. Serve others. Be a part of the community.
