Dennis Prescott, a former president of Cheeseburger in Paradise and one-time VP of business development for Outback Steakhouse parent Bloomin’ Brands, has been named CEO of the WingHouse Bar & Grill wings chain.

He succeeds Terry Ryan. No reason was given for Ryan’s departure.

WingHouse, formerly known as Ker’s WingHouse, was founded in 1994 by former Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos star Crawford Ker. The concept was acquired in 2014 by the private-equity firm Third Lake Capital.

The chain currently extends to 25 locations in Florida.
