Curtis Wayne Jordan (born January 25, 1954, in Lubbock, Texas) is a former American football safety in the National Football League for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins. He played college football at Texas Tech University and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1976 NFL Draft.

Since retiring from football in 1986, Jordan has been involved in the restaurant business in Lubbock. His interest in restaurants was aparked during the 1982 NFL players strike. He was involved in the operation of several East Coast restaurants before returning to Lubbock, where he owns Cujo's Sportz Bar, 50th Street Caboose, and the Copper Caboose. In July 2009, he opened the first Five Guys Burgers and Fries chain outlet at the busy intersection of Quaker Avenue and 18th Street in Lubbock. Within five weeks, the restaurant was ranked No. 2 in Texas for sales.[1]

Jordan's interest in Five Guys, headquartered in Virginia, developed when a former Redskins teammate, Mark Moseley, the company's director of franchise operations for Five Guys, approached him about opening franchises. Beginning in 2002, franchisees were sought nationwide. Jordan is also opening a second Five Guys outlet in the Golden West Shopping Center in Lubbock and two more each in Amarillo, Midland, and Odessa, Texas. He also may move into the Abilene and San Angelo markets. In 2009, Five Guys had nearly five hundred outlets nationwide.[1]
