RIVERSIDE, Calif. - March 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - 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.

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.
