Meet LJ Bryant
One Bowl Inc. is an Arkansas S-Corp doing business as eGen Insurance and is currently owned by its President, LJ Bryant, wife, Rebekah, and family.
December 2019, Bryant sold 42 franchised Jackson Hewitt income tax offices in three states. These locations were built up, some from scratch and some from an acquisition. These offices prepared around 13,000 tax returns annually.
LJ’s undergraduate degree is from Hendrix College. He has a master’s degree in workforce development education from the University of Arkansas and was named top 11 to watch in 2011 by the Arkansas Democrat Gazette and top 20 in their 20s by Arkansas Business.
Bryant currently serves on the Jonesboro, Arkansas City Council, serving on the finance and public works committees. Two Arkansas governors appointed him to serve on the Arkansas Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Council. In addition, Bryant serves as the Arkansas FCCLA Leadership Foundation’s treasurer and a board member of the Arkansas Kid’s Chance organization.
LJ owns around 40 doors of rental property. He utilizes a third-party property manager to manage these properties. However, LJ often buys and flips property.
Bryant’s passion is customer service and building teams. At Jackson Hewitt, Bryant served on the franchisor’s national advisory council. LJ’s purchase of this Searcy, AR office will give him a platform to take these skills to grow and scale another business.
The office has a producer who has been there several years. Bryant plans to work with this existing employee to learn the insurance business and combine that with his business skills to ensure success for himself and his teammates while providing exceptional customer service. The focus of eGen Insurance will be balancing the traditional relational side of insurance and using digital tools.
