A restaurant executive who helped propel Domino's Pizza Inc.'s Pizza Tracker app to success is joining Baltimore's OrderUp as chief operating officer.
Chris McGlothlin will lead OrderUp's daily operations and is charged with scaling up the company's online ordering and on-demand delivery infrastructure. McGlothlin worked as chief information officer and executive vice president at Domino's from 2006 to 2011. Most recently, he was a general manager and senior vice president for Accretive Health, a health care consulting firm.
"Chris' experience building Domino's e-Commerce platform combined with his delivery operations experience, including creating systems and processes to support best-in-class delivery, will accelerate OrderUp's rapid growth nationwide," CEO Chris Jeffery said in a statement.
Domino's — with its mobile voice ordering and Pizza Profiles for regulars — is a leader in online ordering and delivery. The Michigan company's current chief information officer, Kevin Vasconi, in January told the Detroit Free Press that Dominos had grown its IT workforce from 125 to 300 over the last three years.
McGlothlin helped Dominos restructure its online ordering system in the late 2000s when the company saw online ordering as a way to boost sales without propping up new restaurant locations. McGlothlin played a founding role in Domino's Pizza Tracker and helped grow digital sales to $1 billion.
OrderUp partners with local restaurants to make their menus available to online orderers and contracts with delivery drivers. OrderUp has a presence in 37 markets and handles about 30,000 weekly transactions. OrderUp's former chief operating officer, co-founder Jason Kwicien, is now vice president of delivery operations.
The company in January moved into a new 14,000-square-foot office at the Can Company in Canton, where about 70 of its more than 120 employees work.
