MIAMI, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc., an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: TAST) announced that industry veteran Joe Brink has joined Fiesta as vice president of supply chain management.

Brink will oversee all aspects of supply chain management for Fiesta's two brands, Taco Cabana and Pollo Tropical, including food and ingredient sourcing, purchasing, food safety, quality assurance and distribution. He will report directly to Fiesta's Chief Executive Officer Tim Taft.  

"I have worked with Joe for the past six years and am familiar with his tireless work ethic and the effort he puts into cultivating outstanding relationships with his supplier partners. It's great to be able to add his caliber of leadership to the team," said Tim Taft.  "As outside influences continue to put pressure on the foodservice industry, I'm confident that under Joe's leadership, Taco Cabana and Pollo Tropical will continue to deliver high quality food at the tremendous value that guests have come to expect from us."

Brink's extensive experience spans more than 20 years of supply chain management in the restaurant industry. He was most recently vice president of supply chain management for Souper Salad and Grandy's restaurants. Prior to that, he served in senior positions across supply chain management, purchasing and R&D for both Pizza Inn and Grandy's.
