US-based Beans & Brews Coffeehouse has named Chad Gretzema as the company’s new CEO, according to a report by World Coffee Portal.

Prior to this appointment, Gretzema was associated with the Del Taco restaurant brand, where he held various leadership positions.

During his 12-year association with the brand, Gretzema served as the Del Taco Brand president, its strategic planning senior vice-president and its chief operating officer (COO).

World Coffee Portal quoted Gretzema as saying: “I couldn’t be more excited to join Beans & Brews Coffeehouse as we accelerate growth. The brand has not only built a devoted following in its existing footprint but is also witnessing strong success as it expands to new states.

“With our proprietary high-altitude roasted coffee beverages, signature energy drinks and really attractive unit-level economics it is not surprising that the franchisee development demand is at an all-time high.”

With this new appointment, the Utah-based coffeehouse aims to further expand its presence in the country and open 100 stores by 2025.
