Riverside, Calif.-March 16, 2015– Farmer Boys announces the addition of Rona Griego as Director of Construction. Effective March 16, 2015, Griego will oversee all construction activities for Farmer Boys Restaurants as Kevin Kelly, the current Vice President of Development, transitions to a new role as a multi-unit franchisee.
“Farmer Boys continues to grow and evolve as a brand. Rona will be responsible for the crucial task of developing our new restaurants and the remodeling of our existing locations,” said Farmer Boys President/COO Ken Clark, “We are pleased to welcome her to the team and to benefit from her vast industry knowledge.”
Griego brings to Farmer Boys over 30 years of restaurant experience in construction and facilities management. Her passion for construction blossomed in college when she began her career with Denny’s. Since then, Griego has played a key role in developing various casual restaurant chains including Elephant Bar and El Torito.
“Restaurant construction is my passion,” said Griego, “I am excited to contribute to the growth of Farmer Boys and to begin work on the signed deals opening this year.”
Currently, Farmer Boys has various locations in development including Kelly’s franchise commitments in Northridge and Chatsworth opening in spring and fall 2015. Kelly joined the Farmer Boys team in 2007 when there were 55 Farmer Boys locations.
“This is a wonderful company, the time feels right to transition into a new role,” said Kelly, “I am excited to experience the procedures and initiatives we have worked on during my tenure as Vice President of Operations and Development.”
