Two executives at casual dining chain Denny's, including the company's CMO, will resign this month, the company announced. Mark Chmiel, EVP, CMO and chief innovation officer, and Janis Emplit, EVP and COO will leave their posts before year's end.

Replacements for both positions will be sought internally and externally. Meanwhile, their duties will be distributed among marketing and operations departments until replacements are found.

In a statement, Nelson Marchioli, CEO of Denny's, said that “it is necessary to ensure we have the leadership that can drive sales and the brand forward as it progresses in its transition to a primarily franchise-focused business model.”

Denny's has approximately 1,500 restaurants, of which 256 are company-owned and 1,280 are franchise operations.
