A founding partner of GPS Hospitality, Jasinski has been instrumental in the franchisee’s growth since it began in 2012 with 42 BURGER KING restaurants.

He played a primary role in securing financing and navigating complex negotiations to complete nine acquisitions and diversify the company’s franchise portfolio, which includes seven recently acquired Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants in Georgia. GPS Hospitality is now among Atlanta’s fastest growing private companies and one of the largest BURGER KING franchisees in the country with over 220 restaurants.
“Scott has been a key member of our executive team, a driving force behind our acquisition strategy and a trusted colleague since we first started GPS Hospitality. His hard work and dedication cannot be understated, as he has helped us become the successful company we are today,” said Tom Garrett, CEO of GPS Hospitality. “He is a strong asset to our business and we congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition.”
The CFO of The Year Awards, hosted annually by Atlanta Business Chronicle in partnership with the Association of Corporate Growth, recognizes the achievements of Atlanta’s leading CFOs and their contributions to some of the fastest growing and most successful companies in the city. Nominees are evaluated based on the company’s profitable growth, ability to manage their organizations’ finances and corporate reporting responsibilities, among other duties.
