Ed Rensi gave up 75,000 stock options when he abruptly resigned as Famous Dave’s CEO in June after only a year in the post.

Last week, along with releasing a dismal quarterly earnings report, Famous Dave’s criticized Rensi for making changes that upset customers.

Rensi, a onetime high-ranking McDonald’s executive, resigned as Dave's CEO on June 18. Upon his resignation, 75,000 stock options granted in January 2015 were “forfeited,” Famous Dave’s said in a federal securities filing Friday.

Rensi had undertaken a major initiative to remodel the barbeque chain’s restaurants and add items to the menu.

 But Dave’s, currently being run by interim CEO and board member Adam Wright, said in a statement that “the changes included smaller portions, different plateware and changes to iconic items such as cornbread muffins and other poor decisions.”
