REGO Restaurant Group, parent to the Quiznos and Taco Del Mar brands, has named Tom Kurrikoff (left) as chief financial officer, the company said Tuesday.
Denver-based REGO was created in the wake of private-equity firm High Bluff Capital Partners’ acquisition of Quiznos in June 2018 and Taco Del Mar in July 2018. Kurrikoff succeeds Bruce Vermilyea in the CFO role, a company spokesperson said.
“As we look to expand our brand portfolio through strategic acquisitions, as well as continue to leverage our centers of excellence across the business, Tom brings a tremendous amount of experience,” said Tim Casey, REGO CEO, in a statement. “As a highly qualified senior executive with progressive finance and operations experience in multi-unit retail businesses, Tom will play a critical role in resurrecting and transforming our current and future brands.”
In his prior CFO role at TGI Fridays, Kurrikoff led the sale of the company, completed three debt financings and refranchised more than 300 company restaurants, REGO said. Prior to TGI Fridays, Kurrikoff held various executive and finance positions at Blockbuster Inc., Burger King Corp. and Pizza Hut Inc.
“I am excited to join REGO and whole-heartedly embrace its business model,” Kurrikoff said. “I look forward to working with multiple brands across a growing portfolio alongside a collaborative, hands-on management team with a keen entrepreneurial spirit.”
REGO Restaurant Group has nearly 800 restaurants in 32 countries.
