The Little Beet Appoints Former Starbucks Executive, Becky Mulligan, to Chief Executive Officer


– Industry Veteran to Spearhead the Plant-Inspired Fast Casual’s Growth Nationwide –

The Little Beet, a plant inspired fast-casual restaurant, announced today that it has named Becky Mulligan as its chief executive officer. Mulligan is an industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience leading operations, innovation and program development for internationally recognized retail and food brands. In her new role, she will oversee The Little Beet’s vision, operations and nationwide development plans. Since its founding in 2014, the New York-based restaurant brand committed to providing a healthier lifestyle has grown to nine locations across the state, and has also expanded to Washington, D.C. and Virginia.

“We’re excited for Becky to lead us into 2019. Her leadership skills, work ethic and strong business acumen will help us become the leader in our growing segment,” said Andy Duddleston, co-founder of The Little Beet. “While 2018 was a successful year for us, with Becky’s leadership, we have no doubt that next year will be our most successful year in business and that The Little Beet will continue to position itself for long-term success.”

Mulligan joins The Little Beet after nearly 16 years with Starbucks where she held a variety of positions. Most recently, she served as regional director of the company’s Seattle, Washington market, and led several key initiatives for 95 Starbucks stores throughout the region. In addition to her localized work, Mulligan was instrumental in the development and ongoing innovation behind Starbucks’ mobile order app, ensuring that the brand’s highly acclaimed in-store experience was consistent through off-premises orders and delivery. Prior to Starbucks, Mulligan was with Kinko’s for 12 years where she worked in leadership and management, as well as corporate sales. With her competence in the digital and retail realm, Becky will bolster The Little Beet’s retail operations and digital initiatives.

“The Little Beet has certainly made a name for itself throughout New York City, as well as the D.C. area, and is poised for explosive growth as consumers become more health conscious and attracted to plant-based meal options,” said Mulligan, chief executive officer of The Little Beet. “I feel that there is a natural synergy between the brand’s mission and the lifestyle I lead day to day, which is why I’m so excited to join the brand and expand our concept across the country.”

Mulligan’s appointment comes after John Rigos, interim CEO of The Little Beet and co-CEO of Aurify Brands, announced he would be shifting his efforts to strengthening Aurify Brands’ portfolio and partnerships.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
