Mongolian Concepts — parent company of Genghis Grill, FlatTop Grill, and bd’s Mongolian Grill — has named Gregg Majewski its CEO the company announced Thursday.
Majewski has previously served as the CEO, chief operations officer and chief financial officer of quick-service sandwich chain Jimmy John’s, now owned by Inspire Brands. Majewski has also consulted in the restaurant industry.
“When presented with the opportunity to reinvigorate not one, but three iconic restaurant concepts, I couldn’t say no. I had been on the hunt for a unique, stand-out restaurant that values customization, and the Mongolian Concepts are just that,” said Majewski in a release. “Our customers can make their culinary visions come to life in our restaurants, and I’m eager to invest and upgrade each brand — not only by refreshing the ingredients we use but also by building a championship team.”
Dallas-based Mongolian Concepts encompasses over 75 units of three Mongolian barbecue brands. Each concept features a create-your-own stir-fry experience, though Genghis Grill pivoted to a build-your-own buffet-style concept during the pandemic.
“Ultimately, my goal is to give our customers what they truly deserve – the best of the best. We’re adding to our leadership team, tapping into the best and most fresh ingredients, updating operations and revamping our overall customer experience,” Majewski continued in the release. “The strong culture behind each of our brands and the momentum to drive our businesses forward is sure to stir-up some excitement across the nation.”
Previous Mongolian Concepts CEO Jim Vinz retired in April 2020.
