You could probably say the category is "cool again" as we all head to the well of "fresh and healthy." They're relatively small with some concentrated pockets and a big dream to be a nationally recognized brand. Can you take them there?
It's a kind of strategic role managing all forms of franchise development including five Regional Directors operating in a kind of "quasi sub franchise" format -- although we don't like to use that phrase. Domestic and non-traditional growth are the priorities with an open ear to international.
It is a "selling" role, but it's also a strategic management role -- and that's opened the door for flexibility on title and how we structure the comp package. This will be my third placement for the company and a long term relationship is in place with the CFO & CEO...and maybe now you as well.
It's a fascinating multi-brand restaurant company with multiple revenue streams including everything from fine dining to catering. The locations are premiere and include Rock Center & The Hollywood Bowl. But the good news is yet to come...
My Controller search includes all the debits & credits you can eat, CPA/MBA preferred -- but what I'm really looking for is someone who can eventually assume the CFO's role. Someone who can step out of the bank recs and period close and be a manager bridging any gaps between this brilliantly driven operating culture as a liaison to the place where the rubber meets the road in the numbers that don't lie.
It's all about how you tell the story -- not just the story, so I'm anxious to hear your story and your career plan that can lead you to a title that begins with C and ends in O.
This might be one of the best kept secrets in retail. It's a 60 unit big box (10-12K sq. ft.) concept who's stretching their growth outside their regional presence in LA up to Sacramento & Fresno...and TX in 2014.
Ironically, there's no real real estate function in house, the VP of Development is knee deep in deals, lease/purchase agreements, rent/CAM renegotiations -- his plate it just too full; so here's hoping you're hungry to take a bite!
You're a real estate pro with a good knowledge of LA, and ready to stretch your own growth legs into something greater than what you're currently doing. Familiar with Buxton and similar tools? Know your way around the Central CA Valley area? Shirt sleeves rolled up and ready to rock? Give me a call and let's get started!
VP Information Technology
Named an NRN "Hot Concept" and one of the top 10 CEO's to watch, this brand has 30 new stores to open this year -- and they're all company owned. The concept is fresh, the people and friendly and the food is fantastic.
You'll need to be fluent in Aloha and have a track record that's now for a powerful operations interface -- it's a huge part of their culture and a non-negotiable element on the job description.
It's a TX based gig with a big dose of southern hospitality executed in a way that appeals to soccer moms, family's and anyone who cares about eating healthy AND eating fun.
Get in touch and get current with me about any of the above assignments; I'm happy to talk to you about culture, compensation and the other compelling part of any of these stories...as well as a few I haven't published for the sake of confidentiality (yours too!).
