VP Development

With just over 100 locations open and 10 in the development pipeline, it's time for this brand to rise to the next level.

Franchise Sales, Real Estate & Construction will all be part of this role and you'll be leading a team of 4-6. Franchise Sales is priority number one and I'm looking for talent comfortable with Area Development agreements of five or more locations. There's a little non-trad and some licensing opportunities for domestic locations, international development will likely begin in 1-3 years.

The brand has AUV's of about $2M and great unit economics in a fast-casual format. Most locations are in-line strip centers and build out is approximately $650K. You're a forward thinking development pro, tuned in to technology and relationship driven capable of working in a highly collaborative environment.

Location: Open (remote/hybrid/travel)

Base Compensation: mid $100's plus bonus & incentives

Chief Financial Officer

It's a fast-casual concept including a full bar with AUV's just over $5M out of 3,500 sq. ft. with a 22% food cost. The product travels well (a delivery/take out dream come true). The team includes a very strong Controller for all the debits & credits, we need your finance skills for the big picture focus.

Four locations were open this year including a "central kitchen" with an express (delivery/take out only) unit attached. Licensing deals are in place for what I'll call non-traditional locations and the focus is on company owned restaurants. Three new locations are already on the calendar for 2023 and more are in the pipeline.

There's more to the story including other significant revenue streams. Get in touch for all the details!

Base Compensation: low to mid $200's

Location: No. CA

VP Information Technology

My client is known for being "best in class" and it's time for a strat plan to upgrade their technology stack. Everything from accounting to POS to HRIS is on the table for a review, upgrades or changes.

There's a team of 5 to help with the tactics while you map out the strategy. You'll first need to play a hands on role to learn what's in place, what's working and what's getting in the way. The strategy comes next and your vendor relationships and vision are key.

You'll be charged with leading the team, cross collaborations with other departments, budgets and presentations for the solutions. The good news...security is pretty buttoned down and not likely to be part of the plan.

Location: Somewhere in the corridor between Chicago & Dallas...?

Base Compensation: $200K and up including bonus and a handsome benefit package
