Dick's Wings and Grill Hires Its First CEO

JACKSONVILLE, FL --(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Dick's Wings and Grill, the award winning casual dining restaurant chain located in Jacksonville, FL, announced this week that Dave Eberle has been hired as its first CEO. In his role, Dave will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and support as well as growing the current franchise system, revenue and profitability.

Dave joins Dick's Wings and Grill directly from Johnny Rockets Inc., where he held the position of Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales and Development, responsible for the growth of both traditional and non-traditional locations. As well, Dave created a disposition team to sell company units to potential franchisees.

"With its great menu and family friendly atmosphere, Dick's has the potential to grow from a local Jacksonville chain to a national one, much like our competitors have done in their early years," says Dave. "We are in a growth mode and I look forward to taking this emerging chain to new heights."

Prior to Johnny Rockets, Dave was the director of franchise sales at Buffalo Wild Wings during their peak growing years. He sold 42 franchise units to 11 multi-unit developers , designed and implemented a New Franchisee Orientation Program, New Opportunities Program, Discovery Day and Approval Day -- all designed to ensure franchisee success. He also held a number of executive positions, including director of franchise sales at Arby's, director of franchise sales at Dunkin Brands, Inc., and various leadership roles in other franchise systems.

"The addition of Dave Eberle is a huge win for us," said Mike Rosenberger, founder of Dick's Wings and Grill. "He is a proven franchise leader that brings a wealth of knowledge -- real estate and site selection, operations, training, marketing and advertising -- to our organization. It's great having him on the team."

Dave received his Bachelor's degree in Business from DePauw University and is a former Naval Aviator, serving 10 years in the US Navy.
