Meet the Guest: Mike Dixon

Mike Dixon is the CFO at Focus Brands and has been with the company since 2016. With 20 years of experience in the industry, Dixon has worked with several concepts, ranging from full service to quick service.

In his role as CFO, Dixon is responsible for the development and execution of the financial strategy for Focus Brands, as well as overseeing several other support service functions.

In dealing with shifting operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dixon said, “We adapted quickly to the changing consumer preferences resulting from COVID.”

“The challenge for us was to adapt these changes effectively and efficiently, knowing that guests will be back in the restaurant once COVID has passed, but they’ll also want to take advantage of those new channels that we’ve created.”

Focus Brands is a leading developer of global, multi-channel foodservice under the iconic brand names of Auntie Anne’s®, Carvel®, Cinnabon®, Jamba®, Moe’s Southwest Grill®, McAlister’s Deli® and Schlotzsky’s®.
