Back Yard Burgers welcomes new CEO
Back Yard Burgers has hired Scott Shotter as its CEO, according to a press release.
Shotter previously worked for Moe's Southwest Grill as vice president of operations, bringing the brand's count from 200 locations to more than 700 during his nine-year tenure.
Prior to Moe's, Shotter managed operations for more than 30 national and regional brands, including Starbucks, Sbarro, Popeye's, Johnny Rockets and Burger King.
"I'm very excited about these plans and it's one reason I joined the team," Shotter said in the release. "In addition to the new store prototype, we're going to focus on the culinary and service experience Back Yard Burgers provides to our customers. We know that our franchise partners are going to be equally excited and we look forward to rolling out what I believe is a well-planned growth strategy."
Founded in 1987 in Cleveland, Mississippi, the brand has 51 locations.
