We’re expanding our team! We’re pleased to announce that real estate and site development veteran, Andy Benning, will lead real estate development efforts as Chick N Max gears up for significant growth in 2020.
“We are so excited to announce the addition of Andy Benning to the Chick N Max corporate team. Andy will be a huge asset in our next phase and will allow us to accelerate our growth plan,” said Max Sheets, Founder, Chick N Max. “His depth of experience in new store development with some of the top concepts in the fast-casual sector will be key in expanding our brand. Andy will play a key role as we continue to build our business.”
Benning, a proud Kansas native and graduate of Wichita State University, has more than 30 years of experience in new store development in the foodservice industry. His career began with Coulter Enterprises during their Pizza Hut development and then carried through with the Lone Star Steakhouse and Saloon expansion in the 1990s. In 1999, Benning joined the United States Beef Corporation team and as the Director of Real Estate and Site Development helped create the largest Arby’s franchisee in the nation with nearly 400 units. During the rapid growth of the Arby’s brand the US Beef development team was awarded the “Developer of the Year” several times at the Arby’s Corporate convention. With the recent sale of US Beef, Benning is ready to help drive the “Hot New Concept” of Chick N Max.
“With my 30 plus years of experience in this field, I’m ready to hit the ground running in this new role,” said Andy Benning. “I’m looking forward to working with the entire team to expand Chick N Max in 2020 and beyond.”
