Chanticleer Holdings, the owner, operator and franchisor of brands including Hooters, Little Big Burger and American Burger Co., appointed Fred Glick as the company’s president Thursday.
Glick most recently served as the vice president of brewery restaurants for Karl Strauss Brewing Company.
“I think we have a uniquely strong foundation from which to accelerate future growth,” Glick said in a statement. “I look forward to immediately rolling up my sleeves and getting to work helping to oversee our continued expansion, while most importantly enhancing our immediate and long-term profitability objectives.”
Before joining Karl Strauss, Glick served as vice president of operations for Phil’s BBQ and as president and chief operating officer of a 25-unit Hooters franchise.
“Fred is a proven leader who is known for his ability to build brands through driving positive employee and guest experiences,” Mike Pruitt, Chanticleer CEO, said in a statement.
