Jenn Townsend, who has spent the last two decades developing new menu items for some of the most well-known global franchise chains, has been named the new executive chef and director of menu development for Huddle House.
A native of Atlanta, Townsend says she is excited about the opportunity to lead the menu strategy for the full-service family restaurant.
“Being from Georgia, I have a sweet spot for Southern comfort food,” she says. “Huddle House is going in the right direction. We are opening new stores, increasing same store sales and I look forward to playing an important role in that growth.”
Prior to joining Huddle House, Townsend held key operations and menu development positions with Church’s Chicken, Arby’s Restaurant Group, and Blimpie International, among others.
“We expect Jenn to have an immediate impact,” says Huddle House CEO Michael Abt. “Her passion and creativity combined with a deep understanding of both franchisees and our customers will be important as we enter a new era of growth for Huddle House.”
