King Street Consultants has appointed seasoned marketing executive Stacey Kane as its new chief marketing officer.
Kane brings more than 25 years of restaurant and franchise marketing experience to the role. She previously served as vice president of marketing for California Tortilla, marketing lead for Chef Jose Andres’ Think Food Group and also spent 11 years as an account supervisor for MarketSmart Advertising, which handled regional marketing for over 1000 Subway restaurants.
She will offer her extensive knowledge to support King Street’s roster of emerging franchisors, such as The Halal Guys, Mamoun’s Falafel, and Jon Taffer’s Taffer’s Tavern.
“There are few people in franchising with Stacey’s creativity and deep understanding of marketing analytics and trends,” said Scott Goodrich, co-founder of King Street Consultants. “Those skills coupled with her ability to scale highly effective marketing systems for young concepts make her the perfect match for the franchisors we support. These emerging brands will get much, much more than they are otherwise able to afford at their early stages.”
“I am very excited about my new role,” says Kane. “The King Street Consultants’ model allows me to maximize marketing resources of multiple emerging brands at the most critical time in their growth. I am able to deliver full marketing strategies that would normally require third party agencies and additional staff. Everything I have ever learned — every best practice and every best-know-way — will be poured into these emerging brands.”
