He also adds 20 more years of experience to Mr Brews’ stacked lineup of veteran restaurant industry leaders, bringing our team’s combined experience to an impressive caliber for a brand of our size. We know Kenny is ready to hit the ground running, so we look forward to welcoming him and seeing everything he contributes to the Mr Brews brand.”

In my new role, I plan to lead by example and never let off the relentless pursuit of overcoming the next challenge. I can’t wait to get started and am ready to build on the success that got Mr Brews to where it is today.”
