Peterson named vp of franchise sales for Togo’s

SAN JOSE Calif. Todd Peterson has been named to the newly created position of vice president of franchise sales for Togo’s Eateries Inc., officials announced Monday.

The San Jose, Calif.-based sandwich chain has 242 franchised locations throughout the West Coast. Peterson previously managed franchise sales for CiCi’s Pizza, based in Coppell, Texas, and, prior to that, served as vice president of franchise development for the Sizzler USA chain, based in Culver City, Calif.

In his new role, Peterson will be part of the management team brought in by controlling private-equity firm Mainsail Partners of San Francisco after the sandwich chain was divested in late 2007 by Dunkin’ Brands Inc.
