Steve Davis pops off about hiring Tim Pulido from Shakey's pizza, and a guy from Yum's that sells fast food chicken and pizzas. What the hell do they know about running a full service restaurant like Mimi's Cafe that is losing customers or a Bob Evans restaurants specializing in breakfasts? What a pair to hire to grow the business.
I don't know anything about the guy from Shakey's but as far as Herbert, from YUM brands goes, you should be thankful. You will not find a more qualified or motivated individual in the industry. First and foremost, he is a LEADER - he will have a big impact on BOBE. Herbert had amazing mentors at YUM - David Novac the CEO, Alwyn Lewis now the President and CEO of Sears / KMart, Mike Miles - now President and COO of Staples. Steve and Herbert have a very succesful history working together, there is no doubt in my mind that they will move BOBE to new heights.
