A look at what's happening at businesses in Eden Prairie.
Incoming Supervalu CEO Getting Great Options
Supervalu's new CEO Sam Duncan will receive a $500,000 signing bonus, an annual salary of $1.5 million, options for 1.5 million shares of stock and the chance to earn lucrative performance bonuses, according to a recent Pioneer Press article.
Duncan was announced as the incoming CEO after the company sold a huge chunk of assets to Cerberus Capital Management L.P. last week.
Duncan is a grocery retail veteran, serving in the past as CEO of ShopKo Stores, president of Ralph's Supermarket and president of the Fred Meyer division of Kroger, the Pioneer Press reported.
Supervalu expects its now slimmed-down company to make $17 billion in annual revenue.
Popeyes Coming to Town
The country's second largest fried-chicken chain, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, is coming to Eden Prairie.
The company confirmed with Patch it will take over the former KFC restaurant at 7995 Glen Lane. The company says it will open "in the future," and did not provide a specific date. The exterior of the building has been repainted and a Popeyes sign covers the tall former KFC sign off Flying Cloud Drive.
Starkey to Distribute Hearing Aids at Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans
Starkey Hearing Foundation will conduct a service mission to New Orleans Feb. 2, just in time for the Super Bowl.
