Todd Coerver heads to his new corporate digs in Denver and joins five other co-workers each day. Even for a brand that toasted its 10th anniversary on December 9, it’s fair to say Larkburger remains a fast casual with a start-up vibe.

But things are changing. Coerver, who was named Larkburger’s CEO in September, spent the past six years with 170-plus unit Taco Cabana. Before that, he was the vice president of marketing and innovation at Whataburger. When he arrived at Larkburger, it was Coerver’s big-pond experience that the brand was counting on.
