Meet the Team

Meet Jay Nissley

Jay began his working career as a junior in high school at Country Cupboard in 2002. He worked at Country Cupboard while advancing his education at Pennsylvania College of Technology, where he earned his bachelor's of science in networking technologies. Looking for a new opportunity in 2009, he found Ards. He began working at Ard’s while running his own computer business. His first day he was thrown in to the catering end of things and began to learn the business! Eventually, Jay had the opportunity to become the catering manager. He accepted the additional work including food preparation, every day deliveries, corporate events and even some weddings!  Jay has adopted the Ard’s philosophy that is customer comes first and takes that to heart!

In conjunction with being the catering manager, he is also Ard’s own “technology guy.” One of his first tasks was to transition Ard’s general cash registers into a user-friendly point of sale system. This system has allowed Ards to keep better inventory control as well as shows where each payment goes! From there, he has let his passion of technology expand throughout Ards. He does everything from maintaining his original point of sale system, to installing WiFi, to servicing computers, keeping our camera system on track and many other behind the scenes things (most the general public don’t understand, haha.) These technological advances have made communicating throughout the business much easier! Whether the Ard’s team is onsite or offsite we always have access to the details. Jay is a jack of all trades, master of technology at Ards.  

Not only does Jay have a hand in the business, but he will always be considered a part of the Ard’s Farm family! He has worked for the business in 2009 and still pours his heart and soul into what he does. You might even see him catching a movie or going out to eat with the Ard kids on a regular basis.
