Chris Britt
A California native who grew up in Orange County, Chris Britt and his college friend Ed St. Geme got together and acquired Mountain Mike’s in 2017. Today they helm the company as Co-Owners and Co-CEOs, driving a renewed focus on sales growth for existing locations and new unit growth that led the company to surpass its 200-unit milestone and double its new-unit growth pace in 2018. Before acquiring Mountain Mike’s, Britt was owner a well-established private investment firm that owned more than 50 businesses over a 20+ year period, including such retail and restaurant leaders such as Boot Barn, Fire Grill LLC, a 43-unit Burger King chain, and Signature Theaters, which grew to become the 12th largest movie theater chain in the country before it was sold to Regal Cinemas. Britt is also the co-owner of Juice It Up!, a Southern California-based franchisor of smoothies, acai bowls and juices with close to 100 locations in the Western U.S.
