Highlighting Executive Excellence: Troy Hooper

In addition to our brand's top ranking, we are thrilled that our CEO, Troy Hooper, has been named one of the Top 25 Executives in the fast-casual industry. His visionary leadership and strategic direction have been instrumental in our brand's success and rapid expansion. Under Troy's guidance, Pepper Lunch has not only grown its footprint but also enhanced its operational efficiencies and menu offerings, while building a world class team of professionals to support our franchise partners in their journey to multi-unit expansion of the brand in their communities. His recognition as a top executive is a testament to his dedication and the innovative spirit he brings to our brand.

Our Path to Recognition

Pepper Lunch’s rise in the ranks is driven by our unique DIY teppanyaki dining experience, where guests are empowered to cook their meals on our patented hot iron plates. This interactive approach to dining, combined with high-quality ingredients and a focus on affordability, has set us apart in the crowded fast-casual market.

Our success is also fueled by our commitment to continuous innovation. Recent enhancements include revamped restaurant interiors with brighter, more inviting color schemes, improved protein offerings, and the introduction of refreshing beverages from Tractor Beverage’s line. Additionally, our integration of advanced technology, such as the Revel Systems POS and kiosk solutions, has streamlined our operations and elevated the guest experience.

Looking Ahead

Being ranked #4 among the Top 100 Movers & Shakers and having our CEO recognized as a top executive are significant milestones for Pepper Lunch. These accolades inspire us to continue our mission of delivering exceptional dining experiences and expanding our presence in new markets.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated team, loyal customers, and supportive franchise partners who have made these achievements possible. We look forward to sizzling new opportunities and milestones in the year ahead.
