In addition to ensuring that his neighbors are well fed, Adam has been ‘giving back' to his community in many ways. He is known to hundreds of Montgomery County school children as "The Pizza Man," due to the numerous Pizza Demonstrations he has given at elementary schools.

Since the inception of Bagels ‘n Grinds, he has donated tens of thousands of bagels to Ft. Meade, Autism Speaks and countless others just to name a few.

Adam had been on the Board of Directors of JSSA (Jewish Social Service Agency) and on the Board of Directors of Shady Grove Hospital Foundation and currently the vice Chair of Bullis School board of Directors.
Adam's history in the restaurant business began in 1992 when he opened his first establishment, the Cone Zone of Bethesda in February 1992. In March 1994, he opened the Cone Zone in Potomac. It wasn't long before Adam made the connection between pizza and ice cream, and he purchased the original Potomac Pizza in June 1995. Adam sold Cone Zone of Bethesda in 1996, sold Cone Zone Potomac in 1997, and opened Potomac Pizza/Cone Zone Kentland's in 1999.
