Pizza Inn Holdings Inc. announced that it has hired Timothy Mullany to become the company’s chief financial officer.
Mullany comes to Pizza Inn Holdings after serving as the CFO of Restaurants Unlimited Inc., a Seattle-based company with approximately $200 million in sales that owns and operates more than 20 full-service and fast-casual brands, including Kincaid’s, Palomino, and Henry’s Tavern, across 11 states. During his tenure, Mullany was credited with improving the company’s profitability, establishing new sales vehicles, instituting performance-based management practices, and guiding the growth of the business.
“We searched long and hard to find a world-class CFO with expertise in our hyper-competitive industry, and Tim absolutely fit the bill,” says Randy Gier, chief executive officer for Pizza Inn. “He will be an integral member of our senior management team, with responsibilities extending beyond those of a traditional CFO. Tim’s experience in a multi-branded company, where he balanced the needs of a strong legacy brand and an emerging high-growth brand, is directly relevant to the opportunities here. I couldn’t be more excited that Tim has joined our team.”
Prior to joining Restaurants Unlimited, Mullany served as the chief financial officer for Smashburger and its parent company, Consumer Capital Partners, during Smashburger’s growth years.
“With the talented team that Randy has formed and the successful track record of the entire company, I have no doubt that Pie Five will be the next great success story in the fast-casual space and that Pizza Inn will remain a popular destination for pizza lovers,” Mullany says.
Mullany obtained his MBA degree from Columbia Business School in New York and graduated from Villanova University with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1997.
At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts all for one low price. Pizza Inn is an international pizza chain featuring traditional and specialty pizzas, as well as pastas, sandwiches, and desserts.
