UFood Restaurant Group Inc. (OTCBB: UFFC) announced that Abdelkabir Warrad, who has served as general manager of the UFood Grill corporate-owned restaurant at Logan International Airport for two years, will manage the company’s new three units at Aberdeen Proving Ground military base in Maryland.

An experienced restaurant operator, Warrad was a general manager for Au Bon Pain in Boston for four years. He also previously managed Cosi’s Logan Airport location for three years prior to joining UFood Grill.
