GPS Hospitality Names Five New Partners

April 17, 2019

GPS Hospitality, one of the country’s fastest growing franchisees of BURGER KING®, Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen and Pizza Hut restaurants, today proudly announces the addition of five inductees to its Partner Program.

GPS Hospitality’s new partners include:

  • Melissa Lindsey, Director of Operations – Gulf Coast North
  • Chuck Repman, Director of Operations – Northeast
  • Tom Wilson, Director of Operations – West Virginia South
  • Misty Black, Manager of IT Support
  • Gardner Barganier, Director of M&A and Investment Analysis

“GPS’ company culture is at the heart of our organization’s success, and Melissa, Chuck, Tom, Misty and Gardner demonstrate our core values every day with their hard work, character and drive,” said Tom Garrett, CEO of GPS Hospitality. “They are dedicated to growing our business, keeping operations running smoothly and making GPS Hospitality our guests’ favorite fast food destinations. I am proud to welcome them to our partnership program.”

Open to all employees regardless of position, the GPS Hospitality Partner Program is a non-equity stock program designed to reward key team members who are committed to the company’s values and philosophy.

Stock earned through the program paves a path for top performers to be involved in the rise in value of the company, offering a long-term incentive to stay with GPS and participate in its expansion. With the most recent additions, there are now 34 GPS Hospitality partners.

Earlier this month, GPS Hospitality proudly announced the expansion of the company’s portfolio with the acquisition of 75 Pizza Hut restaurants, which totals its restaurant footprint to 13 states across the US.
