Don Lewandowski, Chief Development Officer
Don builds things. Yep, there you have it, that’s really all he does. Don is the Chief Development Officer, or as we like to call him Master Builder. In fact, he creates great big market wide restaurant building things. He has over 27 years constructing buildings for Ms. Fields Cookies, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Baskin Robbins just to name a few. He earned his Master Builder title, when as the Director of Internal Development for Asia Pacific, built and opened 439 restaurants in Japan and Korea, so yeah; he totally knows what he’s doing.
Don’s favorite part of his job is traveling on the company, no, wait, we mean traveling with the company, scouting out new locations, researching the area and ensuring that Cafe Rio will have a profitable year over year sales growth for all new development. He graduated with an Engineering degree, yep we know, another smart guy. He lives with his family in Sandy UT. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, mountain biking and skiing with his family.
The master builder enjoys a Cafe Rio Chicken Enchilada with Red Sauce (Hot), Black Beans and Rice.
