VP Operations

They're "the darlings" of the QSR category with AUV's around $1.5M. This is a 35 unit franchisee who's opened 12 stores in the last three years and six are in the pipeline for the next 18-24 months.

Some help with LSM will be appreciated, but it's the people part is where the rubber hits the road for this gig. It's a simple business with a simple BOH and you'll enjoy tons of autonomy coupled with even greater amounts of accountability. You'll enjoy being able to quickly see the results from every action you take but you won't find anywhere to hide when the P&L gets finished.

It's a field based role, touching the team and the customer every day. I'm looking for that do what it takes, own the business mind set for success in this hands on role that also requires strategic planning.


I am absolutely amazed at this big box restaurant concept. They're an iconic regional brand with outrageously high AUV's, no debt, no PE, no SEC reporting and growing outside their current turf.

  • Hands on skills in a small company environment with a team of 8
  • Technical accounting, insurance, leases and systems development
  • Restaurant, Grocery or Retail experience is a must have
  • CPA or MBA preferred, likely a minimum of 15 years experience

The office is near Glendale, CA just north of downtown. There's bushell of low hanging fruit for someone who can manage change by influence, the classic "sell, don't tell" leader who knows there way around MOD rates, CAM charges and connecting with the operators to improve their P&L analysis skills.
