$OPES The CEO they hired today seems more geared towards rapid expansion based on what he did for Burger King in Latin America and signing up large franchise operators. He will also handle the usual role of dealing with the board, shareholders, analysts, earnings, press, etc. A few months ago they created a new position of President and promoted the chief brand development officer to fill it (who has worked all throughout the company), along with keeping the founder on as an advisor. nrn.com/fast-casual/charlie... Basically the new CEO is the money guy for the suits to hit their numbers while the President handles the brand, menu and operations.
