"On behalf of the entire Good Times team, I would like to thank Scott for his numerous contributions to the Company," said Ryan Zink, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Since his beginnings with Round the Corner in 1978, turned Good Times Drive Thru, Scott's leadership has directly impacted the growth of the brand, from our first location in Boulder, to a 32-unit brand story. His presence has strengthened our organization and assisted in setting us up for the opportunities we have ahead of us in both the Good Times and Bad Daddy’s brands. I am grateful to Scott for his deep knowledge and personal support as I stepped into the CEO role. I value his integrity, dedication, and partnership. My very best wishes are for him in this next stage of his life journey."

I have enjoyed being part of the brand through its joys and challenges and I’m very proud of the legacy I leave behind.  The most significant part of my career has been building deep relationships that will last my lifetime. I’m looking forward to spending time with my wife, Gretchen, our children and grandchildren. I look forward to watching the Company's continued success."
