Guthrie’s Promotes Matthew Myers to Chief Operating Officer, Adds Mike Adams as Director of Operations

May 11, 2022 // // Auburn, AL - Guthrie’s announced today that Matthew Myers has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer while adding Mike Adams as the brand’s new Director of Operations.

Myers is nearly a decade long veteran of Guthrie’s. Under his leadership, Guthrie’s has expanded its presence while improving restaurant execution across its system. With Myers, Guthrie’s has been able to generate above industry average profit margins and grow unit volumes while also further streamlining operations.

“Matthew has run the comprehensive day-to-day operations of Guthrie’s for several years now, so his promotion to COO is part of our natural and exciting evolution,” said Joe Kelly Guthrie, CEO of Guthrie’s Franchising, Inc. “We can’t wait to see the growth that Matthew will champion as our new COO while also promoting additional innovation and support across our entire system. Matthew is emblematic of the deep bench of talent we continue to develop at Guthrie’s to support our growing network of franchisees and I could not be more pleased about his appointment to this critical role at this important time.”

Mike Adams joins Guthrie’s as its new director of operations having most recently served as Director of Operations with MMBB Holding Company overseeing 10 BurgerFi restaurants across five states. In that position, Adams was responsible for all day-to-day restaurant operations, site selection, personnel, and purchasing with full profit and loss accountability. Prior to that, Adams has worked in all levels of the food and beverage industry with brands such as Popeyes, Cracker Barrel, and Forbes-Hamilton Management Company, among others.

“Over his time in the restaurant space, Mike has built an impressive track record of strategic and operational accomplishments,” said Guthrie. “He has proven to be a successful and trusted leader and brings to this position a strong reputation for developing people and inspiring teams. His wealth of experience across a wide variety of restaurant brands will be a valuable asset.”

For more than 50 years, Guthrie’s has drawn in crowds across the country for its hand-breaded chicken fingers rooted in a tradition of fresh, hot, and fast, with a generous dash of southern hospitality. Rounding out Guthrie’s simple, yet classic menu is hand-chopped coleslaw, crinkle cut French fries, Texas toast and its signature dipping sauce. Guthrie’s history spans generations.

Guthrie’s remains a family run restaurant business that uses freshly sourced products and ingredients to create its vibrant, yet simple menu. Since its inception in 1965, Guthrie’s has become famous for its unique take on chicken fingers and down-home food.
