Former Another Broken Egg chain executive Kevin Armantrout has been named CEO of New Orleans, La.-based Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant, a four-unit casual-dining concept, the company said Thursday.
Armantrout was previously chief operations officer of breakfast-lunch chain Another Broken Egg of America Inc., and his prior experience includes management positions at Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Acme Oyster House.
At Lucy’s, Armantrout’s primary goal will be to build an internal team of personnel, systems and processes that will help prepare the brand for growth, as well as fine tuning food and beverage, the company said.
Lucy’s has two U.S. units, in Louisiana and Florida, as well as international locations in Aruba and Costa Rica. A fifth is scheduled to open in Foley, Ala., in the middle of this year, with growth plans into 2024.
Known for its tropical drinks, Lucy’s is owned by Kirkendoll Management, based in New Orleans, which also owns and licenses multiple locations of topless cabaret The Penthouse Club, as well as The Crazy Horse Cabaret and The Gold Club.
