DENVER, Colo. – Robb Chase has joined Quiznos as president of Quiznos Canada. He has held leadership roles at PepsiCo and most recently was the president of Papa John's International, overseeing roughly 500 restaurants, including operations in China and the UK. Canada, with approximately 500 Quiznos stores, is a significant international market for the company.
Greg MacDonald, newly appointed Quiznos Worldwide CEO, was president of Quiznos Canada before he left to run the Quiznos US business last year. Chase will now head up all Quiznos operations in Canada, working closely with Canada COO George Jeffrey.
Through Chase's 10-year stint handling international franchising for brands, such as KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell as part of PepsiCo's restaurant group, he built a breadth of international experience that will be an asset to both the Canadian team as well as the broader international team at Quiznos.
Chase also brings a wealth of franchise marketing and management experience to Quiznos, having worked with prominent Canadian brand Famous Players Theatres where he negotiated franchise rights and improved licensed operations for restaurant chains such as Burger King, Baskin Robbins, New York Fries and Tim Hortons.
Quiznos is a national chain and its nearly 4,000 restaurants offer chef-inspired recipes for sandwiches, soups and salads.
