Taco John’s International Inc. has named Greg Miller to the new role of chief operating officer, the company announced Tuesday.
The Cheyenne, Wyo.-based quick-service brand said Miller has more than 30 years of restaurant industry experience, most recently serving as division vice president of operations at San Diego, Calif.-based Jack in the Box Inc.
Prior to Jack in the Box, Miller served as regional director of operations at San Antonio, Texas-based Whataburger and in a variety of operations and marketing roles at Chicago-based McDonald’s Corp.
“We are thrilled to have Greg join the Taco John’s team,” said Jim Creel, Taco John’s CEO, in a statement “He is an incredibly talented and dedicated individual with several years of valuable experience in operations at other popular quick-service restaurants.”
As chief operating officer, Miller, left, will oversee the operations, training, franchise development and restaurant technology teams.
“I believe I can be a driving force in getting Taco John’s restaurants everywhere to reach their full potential,” Miller said. “I will be relocating very soon to the Minneapolis area, and I am really excited to get to know the city through working at Taco John’s during the week and enjoying fun outdoor activities with my children on the weekends.”
In the most recent Nation’s Restaurant News’ Top 200, Taco John’s ranked No. 117 among brands in U.S. systemwide sales with $373.3 million for the fiscal year ended in December 2019, up from $371.5 million in the preceding year.
