May 06, 2014 // Franchising.com // WEST PALM BEACH, FLA – Franchise restaurant Hurricane Grill & Wings, announced today that Kevin Kruse has joined the executive team as the new chief development officer. Kruse will bring fresh ideas to expand upon the current rapid growth that the full-service, tropical brand has seen in past months.

With over 20 years of extensive franchise development experience, Kevin will work to expand upon Hurricane Grill & Wings' current growth trajectory. Most recently, Kruse served as vice president at Einstein Noah Restaurant Group managing franchise development and real estate site selection for the Einstein Bros. Bagels and Manhattan Bagel brands.
