Eric Grundmeier Named Chief Supply Officer of REGO Restaurant Group
Eric Grundmeier, a seasoned supply chain professional, has been named Chief Supply Officer of REGO Restaurant Group – the Denver-based fast-casual restaurant platform backed by High Bluff Capital Partners that includes Quiznos and Taco Del Mar. The news comes on the heels of the recent appointments of President and CEO Tim Casey and Chief Brand Officer Mark Lohmann, as REGO eyes continued expansion through strategic acquisitions.
Grundmeier, who previously served with PepperJax Grill and Qdoba, will oversee all supply chain systems and processes, including sourcing and quality control across the platform and for individual brands through a shared services model.
Previously, Grundmeier served as a Vice President of Supply Chain and Quality Assurance (QA) for PepperJax Grill and a Senior Vice President of Manufacturing and Supply Chain for Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, where his initiatives resulted in significant, system-wide cost savings and increased supply chain efficiency. Earlier in his career, he served as Vice President of Supply Chain and QA with Qdoba Restaurant Corporation, where he worked during a fourteen-year period of rapid growth, building up the supply chain and QA departments as the number of restaurant locations grew from 23 to 629.
