Front Burner names first marketing chief

Todd Ebert joins Dallas multi-brand company from MultiView

Front Burner Restaurants LP, parent to such brands as Twin Peaks and Velvet Taco, has named Todd Ebert as its first chief marketing officer, the company said Wednesday.

The Dallas-based multi-concept company said Ebert would lead marketing and consumer engagement strategy for all its concepts. Ebert most recently served as chief marketing officer for Irving, Texas-based MultiView, a digital marketing company.

Besides casual-dining Twin Peaks and fast-casual Velvet Taco, Front Burner also owns and operates Haywire, Ida Claire, The Keeper, The Ranch, Sixty Vines, Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co., Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar and the soon-to-open Legacy Food Hall in Plano, Texas.

“Todd will play a key role in driving growth across all of our concepts, optimizing our marketing channels and deploying marketing technology,” said Randy DeWitt, Front Burner CEO, in a statement. “His experience will make an immediate impact on our restaurants, we are excited to welcome him to the team.”

Prior to his position as CMO at MultiView, Ebert served as CMO of ReachLocal, another digital marketing company.

“I’ve been a huge fan of Front Burner’s restaurants, as both a consumer and marketer, for years,” Ebert said in a statement. “After spending 25 years with my sleeves rolled up leading marketing teams that drive growth, this is an exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.”

Front Burner owns and operates more than 100 restaurants across its brands.
