J. David Karam Named CEO Of Sbarro

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sbarro ( www.sbarro.com) announced today that current Board Chairman J. David Karam has assumed the additional duties of Chief Executive Officer.  An accomplished restaurant industry leader, Karam recently served as President of Wendy's International, Inc. During his tenure at Wendy's, Karam led a successful corporate turnaround, which included significant improvements in product quality, operational execution and brand profitability.  Karam replaces Jim Greco, who resigned from the company to pursue other business interests.

"Sbarro has a great heritage with a legacy of innovation and this is a company that has significant opportunity for further growth," said Karam. "Guest service, menu development, food quality and operational excellence will remain at the core of our focus as we continue the revitalization of the Sbarro brand."

Prior to joining the board of Sbarro in January of 2012, Karam served as President of Wendy's from 2008 through 2011.  Following six years of traffic declines and loss of market share, under Karam's leadership Wendy's rose to become the second largest QSR Hamburger chain in the U.S., surpassing Burger King for the first time in Wendy's 42 year history.
