Jordan Krolick is a catalyst for both revitalizing as well as accelerating the growth of restaurant, retail, and consumer-focused companies during times of change.
Jordan’s diverse and perhaps eclectic background reaches across senior executive and retained advisory positions in Fortune 50, mid-sized and entrepreneurial organizations. His efforts revolve around providing strategic and brand guidance, operational leadership, development assistance, and financial management. He is passionate for cross-functional team leadership in a cooperative, learning culture leading to combined group successes that dwarf the individual accomplishments of any single member. Whether global corporations or small entrepreneurial businesses, Jordan brings the same enthusiasm, capability, professionalism and fun.

He is an executive coach as well as mentor and regularly facilitates meetings and negotiations. He has also sat on the Board of Directors for a digital signage company as well as multiple restaurant chains during times of change and growth.
Through permanent, interim and senior advisory roles, Jordan has worked for numerous private equity firms helping improve their portfolio as well as advise on potential restaurant and retail investments. He is recognized for delivering rapid improvement while maintaining a transparent communication style with investors. This includes developing and implementing various operational and growth strategies including executing potential transactions. He will invest in companies and is open to acquiring businesses to own and operate.
As an executive, Jordan has been interim and permanent CEO & Senior Management of full and limited service restaurants. Notably, as President and CEO of a private equity owned quick casual restaurant chain, Jordan’s teams helped reinvigorate the company, beat budget, reduce G&A by 20% and grow franchise sales to nearly 300% of any prior year. Prior, as Chief Development Officer for a top-10 quick service restaurant company, Jordan’s teams revitalized eight struggling divisions and led the design of the company’s turnaround and growth plan including building the most corporate stores ever, completely redesigning the capital allocation processes and inventing both a nationally award-winning new restaurant concept and an associated $400 million product line.
Jordan was also fortunate to have been a part of McDonald’s as its Head of Mergers and Acquisitions where his teams devised and executed a targeted brand acquisition and shared service strategy. In addition, he assisted senior leadership in rebuilding the core business, redefining investment prioritization, developing the global remodel building design and helping establish a new business incubator that created multi-million dollar businesses.
