REGO Restaurant Group, the fast-casual restaurant platform backed by High Bluff Capital Partners that includes Quiznos and Taco Del Mar, has announced Mark Lohmann will be taking on a new role as president.

Lohmann is being promoted from his previous role as Chief Brand Officer, which he has served in since the beginning of 2019. In his new capacity, Lohmann will continue to lead marketing for REGO’s brands with the addition of REGO Operations to his responsibilities. Lohmann comes to the role with substantial experience executing strategy and development in the restaurant sector and related industries.

“Mark has been an integral part of REGO’s success over the past two years and, in this new role, will continue to help lead our growth,” adds Tim Casey, CEO of REGO Restaurant Group. “Instituting Mark as President will help to further optimize our team so that we are able to best integrate and add new brands to our portfolio, bolstering our shared services model and driving efficiencies. I am confident that this move will allow us to put our best foot forward in advance of that moment.”

“As REGO eyes continued expansion through strategic acquisitions, I am honored to step into the role of President and work to spearhead this growth and continue driving forward efficiencies across all our brands,” says Lohmann. “It is a privilege to be a part of a dynamic and ever-growing platform and the team that makes it happen – REGO is truly a center of excellence.”

“If there’s anyone to lead the charge in continuing the transformation of these brands and building out the broader portfolio, it’s Mark,” says Anand Gowda, founder of High Bluff Capital Partners which backs REGO Restaurant Group. “Along with Tim as CEO, I’m confident the team is in a position to gain forward-looking momentum through strategic acquisitions and organic growth initiatives to become a leading platform of quick-serve and fast casual brands.”
