Boston’s Taps Franchise Industry Vets as VP of Sales, Operations
Boston’s Pizza Restaurant & Sports Bar, a national casual dining brand that combines a family-friendly casual dining restaurant and a fan-favored, energetic sports bar under one roof has named two franchise industry veterans to its leadership team. With more than 23 combined years of experience in the franchise space, Ryan Reeves will assume the role of Vice President of Sales and Adam Garner will take the role of Vice President of Operations at Boston’s as the brand gears up for momentous growth and development.
With a strong background in franchise sales, Ryan Reeves comes to Boston’s from SpeedPro Imaging where he dedicated himself to helping business professionals transition into small business ownership through their investment in the brand. Prior to SpeedPro, Reeves held roles in franchise sales at dining brands like McAlister’s Deli and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit as well as headed up business development for a wide variety of technology brands. With a finger on the pulse of innovation and development, Reeves is equipped to take the brand to new heights as well as serve as an experienced guide and mentor for franchisees as they embark on the journey of entrepreneurship with Boston’s.
No stranger to the restaurant franchise space, Adam Garner previously worked as Vice President of Operations at Which Wich Superior Sandwiches where he helped the brand reach its growth potential through supervising all aspects of operations from training to catering and guest services. Prior to Which Wich, he spent five years with FOCUS Brands/Schlotzky’s developing the brand’s operations on the franchise side. Garner’s extensive experience has perfectly primed him to provide strong leadership and strategic plans for development operationally for Boston’s in the years to come.
“We are thrilled to be adding Ryan and Adam to our leadership team and welcoming them to the Boston’s family,” says Jeff Melnick, president of Boston’s. “With their expertise not only in franchising, but also in growing national dining brands, the pair is poised to help take the brand to new heights. As Boston’s continues to grow, both Ryan and Adam will play key roles in evolving the brand operationally and growing it nationally.”
Boston’s offers a contemporary, sit-down family dining atmosphere with a separate sports bar, allowing for family and friend gatherings of all sizes. While Boston’s specializes in gourmet pizza and pasta, its menu features nearly 90 items including salads, sandwiches and a variety of favorites such as burgers, wings and ribs, giving guests an offering of traditional American cuisine. Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar’s U.S. operations are based in Dallas and the brand currently has 23 locations operating in 16 states. The company’s sister brand, Boston Pizza, has over 400 locations throughout Canada.
