Restaurant and Retail Leader Adam Golomb Promoted
Primanti Bros. Restaurant and Bar has appointed President and Chief Marketing Officer Adam Golomb to the role of Chief Executive Officer. Golomb, with extensive leadership experience in the restaurant and retail industries, was appointed to the new role at the beginning of 2023.
Golomb succeeds long-time CEO David Head – who has moved into a strategic consultancy role with Primanti Bros.’ lead investor, Garnett Station Partners.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to lead Primanti Brothers,” said Golomb. “My dad brought me to the original location as a kid – and now, to oversee our the organization and position it for success, I’m humbled.”
The change in leadership does not alter the restaurant’s plans for the future, though.
“We’re continuing to focus on expanding our footprint while also filling out into neighboring communities surrounding our current restaurants,” said Golomb. “We’ll always remain rooted in our history – but our job as we look forward is to bring the best value and the best experience to as many people as possible.”
That plan is already taking hold in Pittsbugh, where Primanti Bros. originated, and also across the state of Pennsylvania.
“We’ve recently opened a location in South Fayette, just south of the city of Pittsburgh, and also in Hanover – in central Pennsylvania,” said Golomb. “This year we’re opening in Chambersburg, PA, Ross Township in Pittsburgh and Weirton, West Virginia.”
Prior to time at Primanti Bros., Golomb spent time in leadership positions at Giant Eagle and Eat’n Park Hospitality. He is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University and holds a master’s degree from Penn State University.
In 1933, Joe Primanti opened a lunch cart in Pittsburgh’s Strip District selling sandwiches to the hungry truckers who were coming and going at all times of the night. Encouraged by sales and positive feedback, Joe expanded to a small storefront where he was joined by his brothers Dick and Stanley and their nephew John DePriter. And that’s how the very first Primanti Bros. location was born – Primanti Bros. locations are all dedicated to that early notion that folks deserve great food, with no pretense, for a good price.
