Mike Andres has been appointed the new president, CEO, and chairman of the board for Nashville-based Logan’s Roadhouse.
“With more than 30 years of restaurant leadership experience for such well-known brands as McDonald’s Corporation and Boston Market, Mike is the right person to lead Logan’s Roadhouse and take this brand to the next level,” says Kelso & Company Principal Philip Berney. Kelso & Co. is a majority stockholder of Logan’s Roadhouse. “He most recently served as a McDonald’s U.S. Division President overseeing seven regions with more than 4,300 restaurants and $11 billion in revenue. His outstanding leadership skills have demonstrated his ability to build highly effective teams that are focused on providing superior customer satisfaction,” Berney adds.
During his time at McDonald’s, Andres had extensive responsibilities in all aspects of operations, marketing, and development. He also served as CEO of Boston Market for six years, when it was a wholly owned subsidiary of McDonald’s Corporation.
“I am excited about leading the Logan’s Roadhouse team,” Andres says. “This is a great brand with a solid foundation and strong consumer appeal. My initial plans are to ensure that we are well positioned to meet the changing consumer demands and to continue improving our restaurant experience for each of our guests,” Andres adds.
Andres is no stranger to Tennessee, having moved there in 2010 with his wife, Connie, and their three children. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee.
Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., Logan’s Roadhouse, Inc. presently runs 229 company-operated and 26 franchised Logan’s Roadhouse restaurants in 23 states.
