New leadership

Founded over 25 years ago, Dr. Praeger’s sells a wide range of frozen and chilled products such as veggie burgers, sausages, nuggets, and breakfast foods. This summer, the brand partnered with Texas-based fast-casual chain Genghis Grill to offer plant-based chick’n and sausage in the chain’s stir-fry bowls.

In July, the company appointed Andy Reichgut, a CPG veteran who previously served roles at Upfield, Pinnacle Foods and Mars, as its new CEO.

In 2021, private equity firm Vestar Capital Partners took a majority stake in Dr. Praeger’s and installed former Pinnacle Foods CEO Jeffrey Ansell as Chairman of its board. Speaking on the new headquarters, the company says the latest space will help to create “an amazing culture” for people and food. “We are looking forward to meaningful collaborations and joyful moments together,” the company posted online.
