SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Jack in the Box National Franchise Association (JIB-NFA) today announced its new slate of elected officials to serve 2 years. The new team is headed by Reza Khajavi as Chairman; Rabi Viswanath, President; Mike Flores, Vice President; Kevin Townsend, Secretary; and Chris Aslam will continue as Treasurer for 2017-2018.
“It is important that we continue to develop and work closely with our corporate partners providing them with feedback in all areas of mutual interest which include, but are not limited to, Marketing, IT, OPS, Development, and Supply Chain Management,” said Reza Khajavi.
“Our partnership works best when there is an environment where we can communicate with each other, always with an eye towards improving performance. We believe that together, we can drive profitability to new levels for both JIB corporate and the franchise owners,” he said.
The appointment of an NFA Steering Committee will further facilitate a level of cooperation and alignment that will be unprecedented in the industry. The NFA Steering Committee will include franchise owners Reza Khajavi, Anil Yadav, David Beshay, Clyde Rucker, Rabi Viswanath and Mike Norwich.
“The steering committee concept will allow us to represent our franchise owners proactively and efficiently and should enable quick resolution to issues that could be divisive if left unresolved,” said David Beshay. “This committee will be able to engage with corporate management at the highest level and will facilitate a team atmosphere and working relationship between the two organizations,” said Michael Norwich.
The JIB-NFA is very enthusiastic and comfortable that this new NFA Steering Committee will empower the brand to reach new levels of excellence. “As far as we know, this organizational structure will be unique in the fast food industry,” said Reza Khajavi. “We at the JIB-NFA are confident that working together we will achieve new heights in our quest for industry impact, leadership and success.”
