Operations expert will lead the chain's unit economics and quality-assurance efforts.
East Coast Wings & Grill appointed Freddy Dupuy director of the newly created unit economics/quality assurance division. The division will focus exclusively on unit-level economics and assist new and existing franchisees in delivering stronger revenue and EBITDA growth.
Spanning more than 20 years, Dupuy's operations career includes tenures with Roy Rogers, Marriott and Rohde & Liesenfeld.
"Although puzzled when Sam first approached me with his vision for this new division, I soon realized he and the brand were setting a new standard for franchise models," Dupuy said. "This new division is walking the talk, investing in what makes the brand great — its franchisees. I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity."
