Our Story
The Beginning (MATsolutions & Schlotzsky's
After serving four years in the United States Air Force after High School, Cary Albert took a position with Honeywell Test Instruments Division in Dallas. Four years later, in 1993, he formed his own Electronics Test and Measurement company called Measurement Assurance Technology, LP (dba MATsolutions). MATsolutions was awarded the Top 100 Small Business Blue Ribbon Award by the US Chamber of Commerce in 2014 and 2015. An award given to the Top 100 Outstanding Companies Recognized for Successful and Innovative Business Practices. Trescal, the international specialist in calibration services, acquired MATsolutions in December 2018.
 
In 1994, Cary, along with his wife Jacquelyn, began another venture. Schlotzsky’s. This up and coming strong regional brand soon allowed Jacquelyn, whom was a Registered Nurse (BSN) at Medical City Dallas, to leave her nursing position and become a full time restaurateur. Not only does Jacquelyn work amongst her stores each and every day, but her children have as well. Each have learned valuable and irreplaceable experiences in work ethic. Jacquelyn exemplifies the epitome of “Hands On” ownership. 
 
In addition, Jacquelyn has been the Treasurer of the DFW Schlotzsky’s Local Advertising Group, managing over $1.2 Million toward Television, Radio and Advertising in the Region. Jacquelyn also currently resides on the Schlotzsky’s Franchise Advisory Council (SFAC). She also sits on boards for Training and Ops, Catering Committee and the Menu Committee, as well as Marketing Committees. Jacquelyn has overseen her Schlotzsky’s businesses and managed the growth with doubling revenue every 18 months over the past 3 years.
 
Real Estate Ventures
The Albert's soon discovered the value of Real Estate in their portfolio of investments when growing Schlotzsky’s, and shortly thereafter began acquiring land to build them on. Today, the Albert’s portfolio is comprised of over 100,000 square feet of Retail, Office and Restaurant space.  

Expansion & Dairy Queen

The Albert's expanded their Schlotzsky’s development in late 2009 when they executed another Multi-Trade Area Agreement throughout the DFW market. Then, in 2012, added Dairy Queen to their portfolio executing a Fifteen (15) Store Multi-Trade Area Agreement as well. In 2016, MTRA’s were signed for exclusive Austin, San Marcos and New Braunfels development by Albert Restaurant Group.  By the end of 2018, Albert Restaurant Group has grown to 32 Schlotzsky's and 2 Dairy Queen locations across much of Dallas / Fort Worth and Central and South Texas with development of more locations in the works for 2019 and beyond.
 
Giving Back
Organizations that the Albert’s companies personally donate into is JDRF from Schlotzsky’s and the Children’s Miracle Network from Dairy Queen. Collectively, the two Brands have donated over $100MM for these amazing causes. 
 
Teamwork
The Albert's are actively involved in all facets of their businesses. Having grown at an eye-popping 100% over the past few years, all accomplished during one of the worst economic downturns since the great depression, was a remarkable feat. This is a testament to the amazing TEAM assembled by this ownership. Our PEOPLE truly DO make the difference.
