Los Angeles and Denver — Nextbite, a leader in virtual restaurants, has hired Dominic Calcagno, a supply chain leader experienced in national QSR foodservice supply chain management, as director of supply chain. Calcagno will lead Nextbite’s supply chain team focusing on driving operational excellence, introducing new capabilities, controlling costs and building its supply chain partnerships.
Prior to Nextbite, he held leadership positions at HAVI, a supply chain services company, where he managed various aspects of the supply chain for McDonald’s North America. During this time, he led source & spend network optimization for food and packaging categories, supply chain solutions development, and designed supply chain planning strategies for new product launches, national and regional promotions, and Limited Time Offers (LTOs).
“The pandemic exposed fundamental flaws and inefficiencies in global supply chains and the critical role they play in determining the success or breakdown of any company initiative,” says Alex Canter, CEO and co-founder of Nextbite. “We have always viewed the supply chain as a strategic tool in supporting our growth, while mitigating negative impacts to our restaurant partners. With Dominic joining our team, we’re confident we will excel at this critical element of a winning virtual restaurant solution.”
