Kum & Go’s vice president of food innovation has left the company for a new, undisclosed position.

Jac Moskalik, vice president of food innovation for more than two years, said in a LinkedIn post Feb. 6, “I’m taking two weeks off and then I’ll be starting my new adventure, which I’m wicked excited about!”

Moskalik’s departure comes on the heels of Maverik, Kum & Gos new owner, in late January saying it will pull the plug on Kum & Go’s fresh, made-to-order foodservice and mobile ordering programs in select stores; however, pizza, burritos and other grab-and-go items will still be available in Kum & Go locations.

Moskalik added in her post: “To say that the past 2.5 years at Kum & Go have been fun and eventful would be … an understatement. I am so grateful for the experience gained and the friendships made. Leading a team of best in class foodies would have to be at the top of my list of experiences at Kum & Go.”

Kum & Go was bought by Salt Lake City-based Maverik last year, completing the acquisition in August. In early January, CSP first reported that Maverik will rebrand all Kum & Go convenience stores to Maverik.

“Food is hard,” the LinkedIn post continued. “Thank you so much for riding the waves, believing in what we were doing and having a blast while doing it! I look forward to watching you all succeed in the future.

The Kum & Go rebranding news comes months after Maverik closed on The Krause Group’s approximately 400-store greater Midwestern chain, based in Des Moines, for an estimated $2 billion. Originally, Maverik—which also has about 400 stores in the Intermountain West region—said it would only rebrand Kum & Go stores in Colorado, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. Chuck Maggelet, Maverik’s CEO, told the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) last fall that they were still deciding on whether to rebrand other Kum & Go locations and make other changes.
