REGO Restaurant Group, parent to the Quiznos and Taco Del Mar concepts, has promoted Mark Lohmann to president, the company announced this week.
Lohmann was promoted from his role as chief brand officer at the Denver-based limited-service company. He succeeds Tim Casey, who remains REGO CEO, a spokesperson said
“Lohmann’s promotion allows Casey to focus on larger initiatives, such as pushing forward the company’s growth strategy through targeted acquisitions and augmenting its shared services model,” the spokesperson said.
Lohmann, left, joined REGO in 2019 from Qdoba. In his new capacity, Lohmann will continue to lead marketing for REGO’s brands with the addition of REGO operations to his responsibilities.
“Mark has been an integral part of REGO’s success over the past two years and, in this new role, will continue to help lead our growth,” Casey said in a statement.
Lohmann’s new position “will help to further optimize our team so that we are able to best integrate and add new brands to our portfolio, bolstering our shared services model and driving efficiencies,” Casey said.
Lohmann added that “as REGO eyes continued expansion through strategic acquisitions, I am honored to step into the role of president and work to spearhead this growth and continue driving forward efficiencies across all our brands.”
Anand Gowda, founder of High Bluff Capital, said, “Along with Tim as CEO, I’m confident the team is in a position to gain forward-looking momentum through strategic acquisitions and organic growth initiatives to become a leading platform of quick-serve and fast casual brands.”
REGO Restaurant Group manages nearly 800 restaurants in 32 countries.
