Seasoned restaurant manager to guide strategic restaurant operations for fast-casual Mexican brand
May 27, 2022 // Franchising.com // CORALVILLE, IOWA – A new vice president of operations is in place for Pancheros.
Today, the brand announced the appointment of Bill Adams to this role. Adams is dedicated to providing operational leadership to the company’s existing corporate and franchise locations, while fostering continued brand growth.
An accomplished restaurant industry executive, Adams brings more than 20 years of operational management experience to this role. Prior to joining Pancheros, he spent six years working with Jimmy Johns, a brand with a strong emphasis on simplicity, similar to the structure of Pancheros.
Adams spent more than 12 years as an operating partner of the Knapick Management Franchise group, where he expanded the network to a total of 64 Dunkin Donuts, Jimmy Johns and CoreLife Eatery locations nationwide while leading new construction, overseeing daily operations and developing marketing budgets. Most recently, Adams spent more than two years with Qdoba, where he successfully led the Michigan region through the pandemic.
“I’m thrilled to join Pancheros and build a strong team,” said Adams, who has been a devoted Pancheros fan since his college days. “I’ve always admired the Pancheros brand because it’s truly an operator brand, as all complexity is stripped away with our focus on simplicity and freshness.”
In his new position, Adams will focus on day-to-day operations for all current locations. His work with franchisees will ensure they have the tools, systems and communication they need from the brand to help maximize their unit’s expansion and profitability.
“We are happy to have Bill join our team. He brings years of operational experience and is a recognized leader in the restaurant industry,” said Rodney Anderson, President and Founder of Pancheros.
