The former CEO of Noon Mediterranean is the new chief financial officer of Just Salad, the New York City-based fast-casual announced Tuesday.
Stefan Boyd, who has also worked as CFO of Le Pain Quotidien, will be charged with growing the nearly 40-unit chain’s presence in new and existing markets.
“Stefan will be an important contributor to our continued growth and expansion, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board,” said Nick Kenner, Just Salad founder and CEO. “Under Stefan’s leadership, we will continue to execute on our mission to serve healthy, affordable, and sustainable food to more guests than ever before.”
Noon Mediterranean filed for bankruptcy protection in August 2018. The 12-unit chain was purchased by Elite Restaurant Group last year.
Just Salad was founded in 2006. The chain serves salads, wraps, bowls, avocado toast and other items, all with a focus on sustainability and environmental awareness.
“Just Salad has seen explosive growth over the past couple of years, and I look forward to building on their momentum,” Boyd said in a statement. “Consumer demand for healthy, sustainable dining options is growing by the day, and we plan to deliver on that better than anyone else.”
