Epic Burger founder David Friedman has announced the appointment of Scott Norrick to the role of chief executive officer for the rapidly growing Chicago chain.

Friedman opened the first Epic Burger location at 517 S. State St., Chicago, in 2008. In the past four years, Epic Burger has grown to seven Chicagoland locations, with the most recent addition opening in September.

Norrick most recently served as senior vice president of development for Potbelly Sandwich Works. During that time, Norrick helped re-launch its unit expansion program. As a result, Potbelly opened more than 50 new shops during his tenure, including successful entries into the New York City, Boston and West Coast markets.

Prior to his tenure at Potbelly, Norrick held executive positions with Darden Restaurants and Steak 'n Shake. He holds a masters of Business Administration from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

Friedman will remain engaged in the business, focusing primarily on public relations, brand initiatives, concept development and culture building. Both Norrick and Friedman will serve on Epic Burger's board of directors.

"Scott has extensive leadership experience at some of the top restaurant groups in the U.S.," Friedman said. "We are excited to have him on board to further Epic Burger's expansion in the Chicago market and beyond."
