Tapping into his significant leadership experience and accomplished past in the coffee and restaurant categories, Harvey joins Dunn Brothers Coffee fresh off serving as president and CEO of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery, a fast-casual concept serving Caribbean cuisine and baked goods, with more than 100 restaurants.

Previously, he was president and chief operating officer of Black Rifle Coffee, where he guided the launch of the brand’s CPG program and designed a new store prototype. Harvey also fueled franchise development for Nathan’s Famous, where he executed strategic plans and spent two decades with Einstein Noah’s Restaurant Group, serving as senior vice president of operations and overseeing more than 850 locations across three different brands.

In his new role, Harvey will take the helm of the brand’s franchise development strategy, expanding its footprint in its existing Midwest and Great Plains markets, and beyond. With a new lens on franchising under Harvey’s leadership, the brand will also implement its latest store prototype that includes a smaller footprint and a focus on drive-thru operations.

“A year into our Dunn Brothers investment, the time is now for us to bring our vision for the brand to life and Scott is the right leader to do it,” says Anand Gala, managing partner of Gala Capital Partners, the privately-owned hospitality and foodservice investment company. “Scott’s industry knowledge and proven ability to successfully lead growth concepts is invaluable. We are confident that he will take Dunn Brothers into a profound expansion era.”

Founded in the Twin Cities in 1987, Ed and Dan Dunn started the coffee concept and set the course for the company’s commitment to high-quality coffees. Dunn Brothers has more than 50 independently owned and operated franchise locations across 7 states. For more information, visit https://dunnbrothers.com/.
