Radtke joins Bojangles with a long history of leadership experience.
Bojangles, the Southern food franchisor with more than 760 restaurants in the U.S., has announced the appointment of Katie Radtke as vice president of supply chain.
In this role, Radtke will oversee food and packaging, distribution, logistics and quality assurance. Prior to joining Bojangles, she served as senior director of global procurement for multi-brand restaurant company Inspire Brands and led efforts for Arby’s in Canada, Buffalo Wild Wings (BWW), Jimmy John’s, Rusty Taco and Sonic.
She managed global procurement exclusively for BWW prior to Inspire’s acquisition and previously held supply chain positions with Boston Scientific and St. Jude Medical.
“Katie is a transformational supply chain leader, and her extensive experience in developing strategies to optimize the supply chain for nationally recognized restaurant franchise brands will be critical as Bojangles continues to grow and meet increased demand for our delicious Southern food,” said Ken Koziol, Bojangles’ chief restaurant support officer.
Radtke’s appointment comes off the back of several new developments for Bojangles, including its ‘40 and 40 deal’ with Chaac Foods Restaurants, and 45-unit multi-franchising agreement with established Bojangles operator, Jeff Rigsby.
“I’m excited to join a company with Bojangles’ solid reputation, dynamic leadership team and passionate fans,” said Radtke. “I look forward to contributing my expertise to align our supply chain strategies to support the brand’s growth, and ultimately, deliver our guests a great experience.”
