New York City — Pink Taco has appointed David E. Miller as chief operating officer. Miller brings almost two decades of leadership experience with other renowned brands, including Hard Rock, Carmine’s, City Winery, Joe’s Crab Shack and Virgil’s Real BBQ.
In his new role, Miller will oversee operational strategy, financial management, quality control and human resources for Pink Taco. In the near term, he will spearhead the ongoing growth of Pink Taco’s flagship location in Times Square, New York City, as well as four other nationwide locations. He also will oversee the brand’s active expansion across the U.S., including Las Vegas, and globally, with a focus on London and the Middle East.
“As we work tirelessly to build on the momentum following the recent Times Square flagship location opening, we are laser focused on successfully opening more locations and serving great food and drinks in a rock n’ roll atmosphere to more customers in the U.S. and abroad,” Miller says.
Most recently, Miller was chief business officer at Alicart Restaurant Group, based in New York, which included Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurants and Virgil’s Real BBQ, with seven locations in New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas. He’s also held COO roles at City Winery and NYY Steak, as well as director of operations of Hard Rock International.
Pink Taco was founded in 1999 by restaurateur Harry Morton, son of Hard Rock Café co-founder Peter Morton. First established at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the Pink Taco brand has since expanded with restaurants in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington D.C., and Miami Beach.
