A Wendyâ€™s Co. executive is returning to his roots.
The Dublin-based fast food chain announced Tuesday that David Karam, Wendyâ€™s North America president, will leave the company at the end of the year. He wonâ€™t be moving far though â€“ Karam is returning to Columbus-based Cedar Enterprises Inc., a Wendyâ€™s franchisee with 151 restaurants in six states.
Neither Karam or CEO Emil Brolick were available for comment. Spokesman Bob Bertini said Karamâ€™s duties will be absorbed by Brolick and others and that the parting was a mutual decision.
