Todd McGregor, CEO of New York Slice Pizzeria

On being passionate, growing sales and standing by core strengths.

QSR MEDIA: What makes you excited about your position?

Todd McGregor: Its an exciting time for New York Slice where we are growing our business Nationally. As the CEO I am passionate about our products, our customers and executing on our strategy for growth. I get up each day with a smile on my face knowing we have the right products for the right markets at the right time and my motivation is to take this to the masses. We are a 12 + year overnight success…

QSR MEDIA: What 3 goals are you focused on?

McGregor: Goal number one is to recruit the right Master Franchisees to help us grow our footprint and to support our strategy

Goal number 2 is to introduce our 90 second New York Slices to the markets that haven’t heard of us yet but soon will!

Goal number 3 is to ensure the success of our Franchisees with quality products and supply chain that gets them away from a kitchen (we don’t need kitchens in our stores) and to have them focusing on what really matters and that is growing sales.

QSR MEDIA: What long-term changes are you planning on?

McGregor: We are currently focused on our short to mid term execution of recruiting Master and Store Franchisees which will be the building blocks for our long term success. Our response from the market has been amazing with a huge level of interest from every corner of the country. Our concept of no kitchen and up to 80% less labour cost of other pizza franchises is really resonating with people.

QSR MEDIA: What are your key business philosophies?

McGregor: Fundamental we are about high quality products that meet a market need. Whilst many in the quick service food industry follow short term trends, we haven’t waivered from our core strengths over the last 12+ years.

QSR MEDIA: What previous positions prepared you for this one and how?

McGregor: I come from over 23 years in Consulting so I believe in the value of process and systems. In my business history I held VP level positions for US publicly listed companies managing independent franchises across the world as well being a successful franchisee myself. Having worked on 5 continents and lived on 3 I have been exposed to broad array of business practices, culture diversity and product marketing from both a franchisor and franchisee perspective.
