Biography

Greg Dollarhyde is the Executive Chairman of the board of directors of Pacific Island Restaurants, Inc., a chain of 93 Pizza Hut and Taco Bell locations in Hawaii and Guam, acquired through a successful LBO financed by Bank of America and private equity firm Brentwood Associates.

Dollarhyde is a 36 year veteran of the restaurant industry in the United States, having had hands-on responsibility for all major aspects of that business during his career. He has been Chairman or Chief Executive Officer of five separate restaurant companies and Chief Financial Officer of two publicly-held restaurant companies, among other responsibilities.

Prior to his current endeavors, Dollarhyde was the President and Chief Executive Officer of Fresh Enterprises, Inc. , the holding company of BAJA FRESH, a rapid growth, "fast-casual" Mexican food chain headquartered in Southern California. Dollarhyde, in partnership with Catterton Parters, Oak Investors and others, purchased the company in November 1998 and, after accelerated growth exceeding 40% CAGR, sold the company to Wendy's International in July 2002 for $275 million; more that seven times their original investment.

Pursuing other entrepreneurial ventures, Dollarhyde is currently lead investor and Chairman of the board of Riot Games, Inc., an early stage, MMORPG video game development company, and is a principal of B Cellars, a newly emerging winery specializing in Napa Valley appellation blends. Additionally, Dollarhyde is a private investor and liaison to private equity funds seeking investments in the restaurant and service retail sectors.

Dollarhyde has been an alumnus of restaurant concepts that are household names such as TGI Fridays (CFO, Initial Public Offering in 1983), Pizza Hut (VP & GM New Concepts, VP Acquisitions), and Kenny Roger's Roasters (Exec. VP & Vice Chairman). Additionally, he has led regional favorites Rusty Pelican Restaurants (CEO 1990 and CFO 1987, Southern California) and Country Harvest Buffets (CEO 1995, Seattle), stewarding the sale of both of these companies to industry competitors.

Greg Dollarhyde is a graduate of Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration and The Johnson School of Business.
