Subway announced the appointment of Courtney Hindorff as managing director of Canada.
Hindorff will spearhead Subway Canada's continual growth and multi-year transformation journey, including enhancing franchisee profitability and improving the guest experience through culinary innovation, operational excellence and strategic development.
He steps into this role following Douglas Fry's transition to president of Subway, North America, earlier this year.
"It is with great excitement that we welcome Courtney to Subway Canada," says Fry. "Working alongside an incredible Canadian management team, I am confident that Courtney's exceptional leadership, deep industry knowledge and dedication to supporting franchisees, will propel our brand to new heights as we strive to make Subway restaurants the preferred destination to eat, drink and work."
With over 15 years of extensive experience in the Canadian franchising and restaurant industry, Hindorff brings a wealth of expertise to Subway. In addition to most recently serving as VP of franchising and international development at Recipe Unlimited (formerly Cara Operations), Hindorff has held senior leadership roles at prominent brands, such as Harvey's, Swiss Chalet, New York Fries and East Side Mario's.
"Subway Canada is a transformative brand and leader in the quick-serve restaurant space that continues to redefine success and meet evolving guest needs," adds Hindorff. "I look forward to working with the team to drive the Subway brand forward by amplifying our presence across Canada, fostering authentic, mutually beneficial relations with franchisees, and celebrating our valued guests."
