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.
