Myhre will Oversee the Operations of 41 Fast-Food Restaurants
GPS Hospitality, a Burger King, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and Pizza Hut franchisee, promoted Nick Myhre to regional vice president. In this new position, Myhre will oversee the operations of 41 fast-food restaurants in northwest Georgia and Chattanooga. He joined GPS as a district leader in April 2016 and later led his district to become the top-performer in 2019. He was then named District Leader of the Year for the East in March 2020 and was promoted to director of operations in June 2020.
Following Myhre’s promotion in 2020, GPS added 23 new stores to his region. In his view, his team has adapted well following the Covid-19 pandemic and is now one of the best regions at GPS. “I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to bring the new team on board and integrate the GPS culture and systems,” Myhre said.
GPS’s leadership team looks forward to Myhre taking on this role. “Myhre’s promotion to regional vice president is a testament to his exceptional leadership skills, dedication and hard work,” said Tom Garrett, CEO and founder of GPS Hospitality. “He has built strong management and operations teams across his region and has consistently been able to instill our GPS Values.” Michael Lippert, president of GPS Hospitality, added, “Nick’s ability to adapt over the last three years has been a tremendous asset, and GPS is proud to announce his well-deserved promotion.”
Before joining GPS, Myhre spent seven years with Wendy’s corporate in various management positions. He was also an infantry team leader in the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment and 1st Marine Division of the U.S. Armed Forces. Myhre understands the benefits and value business ownership offers military veterans.
