Taco Del Mar parent names Tom Kurrikoff Rego CFO

Former Burger King finance director to be pivotal in brand refreshes, acquisitions

The parent of Quiznos and Taco Del Mar named Tom Kurrikoff chief financial officer. Rego Restaurant Group CEO Tim Casey says he’ll be pivotal in the transformation of the two brands under Rego ownership. The new Rego CFO may also be key in supporting additional strategic acquisitions. Casey signaled that Rego would be interested in acquiring additional brands earlier this year.

As CFO of T.G.I. Fridays, he sold the company and also completed three debt financing deals, said the announcement. Additionally, he led the refranchising of over 300 stores. Prior to his role at T.G.I. Fridays, he served as SVP of Blockbuster, Inc., also holding various corporate positions. Kurrikoff also held a number of positions, mostly financial, at Pizza Hut.

Kurrikoff also served as division finance director at Burger King. His experience strategizing company financial structure and with franchisees will serve him well as Rego CFO.

“As we look to expand our brand portfolio through strategic acquisitions, as well as continue to leverage our centers of excellence across the business, Tom brings a tremendous amount of experience,” said Casey.


Rego has expanded its c-suite this year with top executive hires, including those of chief supply officer, chief brand officer and culinary and innovation director. It also hired Casey as CEO at the beginning of the year.
