Allen Corey Joins Quickcue's Board of Directors
Allen Corey, former president and CEO of Craftworks Restaurants and Breweries, has accepted an invitation to join the Board of Directors for Quickcue, LLC. Corey, a well respected member of the hospitality community, brings valuable insight to Quickcue, a growing startup focused on helping restaurants know and serve their guests better.
Corey spent 15 years building the Chattanooga-based Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Group before taking the helm at Craftworks Restaurant and Breweries, which was formed when Gordon Biersch merged with Rock Bottom Restaurants in 2010.
The move to the Board is a natural extension of the relationship Corey has developed with Quickcue. Craftworks was one of the earliest believers in Quickcue’s vision to enhance the dinning experience with guest specific information related to seating, service and food preferences.
“Allen helps change the trajectory of the company,” says Quickcue CEO, Bo Ferger. “His market knowledge and experience will complement an already strong Board and will help fuel Quickcue’s growth over the next 12-18 months.”
“Quickcue is very forward thinking in their approach to the guest experience,” says Corey. “I believe their future is bright. The industry is moving toward a more interactive dinning experience and Quickcue’s Guest Experience Platform will help restaurants deliver that experience in a very personal way. Quickcue could very well be the next big evolution in the guest experience.”
Allen Corey was an initial investor and founder of Big River Breweries, which started in 1993. In 1997, he left his position as partner at Miller & Martin Law Firm in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to become president of Big River Breweries, which became Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Group. Corey holds a B.A. from the University of North Carolina and Juris Doctorate from Vanderbilt University School of Law. He spent 15 years as a practicing attorney, specializing in corporate and securities law before becoming president of Craftworks.
Quickcue, founded in 2011, provides waitlist, reservation, guest text message notification, and table management through its all-in-one iPad-based application. The Chattanooga- based company allows restaurants to better know their guests through in-depth guest profiles that contain seating, service, and food preferences.
