THE COLONY Texas Pizza Inn Inc. has named chief financial officer Charlie Morrison president and chief executive of the 338-unit chain. Morrison had been serving in those roles on an interim basis since Tim Taft resigned in August.
Before he joined Pizza Inn as CFO in January, Morrison was president of Metromedia Restaurant Group’s Steak & Ale and Tavern restaurants. He also has served as vice president of finance for Kinko’s Inc.
“Over the last several months, Charlie has clearly demonstrated his ability to lead the Pizza Inn brand,” said Mark Schwarz, Pizza Inn’s chairman. “I am confident that he will provide the organization with the strategic leadership needed to maximize Pizza Inn’s long-term potential.”
Pizza Inn, based here, franchises all but one of its units.
