A number of experts in the media and financial sector have been watching our growth closely, believing rightly that ours is a company with a uniquely bright future. We have proudly continued to add new locations across Southern California, and of course the ultimate goal is to be a household brand nationwide for families and children who appreciate active play and nutritious food. Our efforts recently got a major shot in the arm, as our board was joined by Philip Gay, former CFO of California Pizza Kitchen and the Wolfgang Puck Food Company:
“Giggles N’ Hugs’ business model aligns well with the top trends shaping the restaurant industry,” stated Gay. “As an active member of the Company’s executive management team, I can put my wealth of industry experience to work as we execute on our plans to expand to 25 locations over the next three years.” Gay brings nearly three decades of industry-related senior executive experience to Giggles N’ Hugs. From 2004 to 2010, he served as director, president, and CEO of Grill Concepts, a publicly-traded operator of upscale casual and fine dining restaurants throughout the U.S. Previously he served as chief financial officer for California Pizza Kitchen and Wolfgang Puck Food Company, and he has held various COO and CEO positions at Color Me Mine and Diversified Food Group.
The days ahead should be exciting ones, and Giggles N’ Hugs is proudly leading the charge toward a better way to enjoy great meals, parties and fun with the entire family. Want to ride the wave with us? Check out our investor page right here.
