Rave Restaurant Group, the parent company of Pizza Inn and Pie Five, on Sept. 18 named Bob Bafundo the company’s president and Andrea Allen its chief accounting and administrative officer.

Bafundo joined Dallas-based Rave in 2016 as president of Pizza Inn and now will oversee all of Rave’s brands. He led the company to six straight quarterly same-store sales increases and helped create a nontraditional brand called PIE.

“He positioned the brand for new growth through systemwide remodels, adding new franchise partners and revitalizing the current franchise system,” Rave CEO Scott Crane said in a statement.

Allen joined Rave last year as vice president of accounting and controller. She will oversee all accounting, finance and administrative needs in her new role.

“All of our brands have seen improvements in budgeting, analysis and decreased time in monthly and quarterly reporting,” Crane said.

Rave operates or franchises 300 restaurants through its three brands.
