YEC members are successful entrepreneurs who’ve built world-class companies. The founders of impactful businesses, each new professional is a welcome addition to the group. So join us this week in welcoming one of the newest members of our community: Michael Heyne.
Michael Heyne is the co-founder and CEO of VERTS Mediterranean Grill, which offers fresh, fast casual Mediterranean cuisine. VERT’s prides itself on making its food daily from scratch with the highest quality ingredients. Michael knows how to encourage customer loyalty and build brand love. He is also experienced in assembling cohesive teams that share the same vision.
During the past six months, VERT’s has built its marketing department by successfully recruiting talent from established brands like Apple, Whole Foods, Car2Go and Red Bull. The company has also hired a very successful Culinary Director and recently completed the build out of a test kitchen, which will demonstrate its aspiration to be at the forefront of the Fast Casual 2.0 movement. Today, VERTS has over 30 fast casual restaurants in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, and plan on a major expansion to the East Coast this summer.
