Quaker Steak & Lube has promoted Bruce Lane to vice president of operations and franchise services.
Lane will be responsible for overseeing the company’s internal operations and franchise teams as well as continuing to lead strategic efforts to drive franchise growth.
Lane joined Quaker in June as vice president of franchise services, where he spearheaded franchise development.
“While it’s only been a few months since Bruce joined the Quaker Steak & Lube executive team, he’s brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table and has been highly instrumental in our efforts to expand the brand’s footprint,” said John Ponczoch, senior vice president of TravelCenters of America and head of TA Restaurant Group, in a statement. TA owns Quaker. “We’re thrilled to announce this well-deserved promotion, and have no doubt that expanding Bruce’s role will accelerate the momentum we’ve generated this year through our aggressive efforts to evolve Quaker Steak & Lube and transform it into a nationally recognized brand.”
