Big Burger King franchisee Carrols Restaurant Group on Monday named Timothy LaLonde interim CFO.
The longtime industry finance executive takes over the position for the late Paul Flanders, who passed away earlier this month.
LaLonde is the company’s former controller and is taking the job on a temporary basis, Carrols CEO Dan Accordino said. He most recently had been the CFO of barbecue chain Dinosaur Restaurants and was the controller of Carrols between 1997 and 2017. He held several finance and accounting positions before that.
“We greatly appreciate Tim for stepping into the CFO role on an interim basis until we identify and appoint a quality candidate to fill the position permanently,” Accordino said in a statement.
Carrols operates 1,087 restaurants. All but 60 are Burger King locations, with the rest being Popeyes Louisiana Kitchens.
