In January, several restaurant companies decided to revamp their C-suites including Wendy’s, MOD Pizza, KFC, and Yum Brands.
Last month, three new CEOs were named at restaurant companies big and small, including Wendy’s, MOD Pizza, and Bonchon.
Both the new CEO of Wendy’s and the chief executive of MOD Pizza are taking the position over from two leaders who had been with their respective brands for decades.
In other news, there was also a new role created at IHOP, Applebee’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill, and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop parent, Dine Brands. The new chief development role is aimed at leveraging shared resources across its system to continue growing across its 18 international markets.
Dutch Bros, Bloomin’ Brands, Biscuitville, KFC, Scooter’s Coffee, Popeyes, Wendy’s, and Paris Baguette all added more than one executive this month. Paris Baguette promoted five executives in the company to C-suite positions including chief marketing officer, chief financial officer, chief people officer, chief operating officer, and chief supply chain officer.
