With Plans to Expand, Wingstop Hires VP of Int'l Operations
Wingstop recently appointed 20-year restaurant veteran Ted Leovich as its vice president of international operations to support the company’s international expansion.
Leovich is an industry expert and leader who specializes in global corporate and franchise operations and development.
His extensive worldwide experience includes restaurant development and operations in the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific, with brands such as Brinker International, Darden Restaurants, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and Tony Roma’s.
“We are primed to tremendously increase our international presence in the coming years,” says Dave Vernon, chief development officer at Wingstop. “We knew the time was right to create a position specifically designed to spearhead our international growth, and with his extensive experience, Ted is the perfect fit.”
Wingstop recently signed a 50-store master development agreement to expand the concept into Russia, and a 20-store agreement to enter Singapore.
