David McDougall, who engineered turnaround success for Marble Slab Creamery, Great American Cookie and Pretzelmaker, took the post of Back Yard Burgers CEO three months after the company entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy. He began Back Yard Burgers' comeback by working to rebuild the company's relationship with its franchisees, and re-engineer its menu and marketing approach. McDougall said he expects the company to have a positive second half of 2013 and hopes to cultivate new development in 2014.
