TORONTO — The Redberry Group has appointed Ken Otto as its new CEO, effective immediately.
Otto boasts a successful track record of developing strong brands in Canada, leveraging his 30-plus years in the hospitality industry. Prior to joining Redberry, Otto led key brands at Recipe Unlimited as president of its Family-Dining Division. Before joining Recipe Unlimited, he was COO for Boston Pizza International.
In his new role, Otto will head Redberry’s Burger King and Pizza Hut expansion strategy in Canada.
“Both Burger King and Pizza Hut possess significant potential in Canada,” says Otto, “and we look forward to working collaboratively with our partners and very talented Redberry teams to deliver simply the best burgers and pizzas to Canadians.”
Earlier this year, Chicago-based City Capital Ventures, LLC acquired Toronto-based Redberry and announced plans to accelerate new-unit growth and remodels for both Burger King and Pizza Hut in Canada.
