As c.e.o., Mr. Sanger will be tasked with developing and executing a major retail expansion plan for the plant-based, clean food quick-service restaurant company.

He brings over 30 years of experience in restaurant operations to SuperFood’s helm. He was chief operating officer at Pieology and Jinya.
