CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati-based Frisch’s Big Boy Restaurants regional chain has named an industry veteran to take over as chief executive officer.

Jason Vaughn comes from Memphis-based Lenny’s Subs, where he was president and chief operations. He also has been an executive at Wendy’s and Yum! Brands.

Atlanta-based private equity firm NRD Capital obtained Frisch’s last year in $175 million acquisition that ended family operation of the business dating to a 1939 drive-thru.

Frisch’s says Vaughn was hired after a seven-month national search and became CEO on Thursday.

Frisch’s says it operates 95 Big Boy restaurants and franchises another 25 in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
