Fuzzy's Expands Leadership Team
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, a fast casual Baja-style Mexican restaurant, has rounded out its leadership team with industry veteran Michael Mabry as the company’s first Chief Development Officer. In this new role, Mabry will lead franchise development while streamlining the real estate and construction processes. Prior to joining Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Mabry spent nearly a decade as President and Chief Operating Officer of MOOYAH Burgers, Fries and Shakes headquartered in Plano, Texas.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has been franchising since 2007 and now has more than 130 franchise locations in 16 states. While brand standards and menu offerings are consistent across the brand, franchisees are encouraged to allow their restaurants to reflect the character of the franchisee and local community.
Mabry’s hiring completes the leadership team that has evolved over the past four months with three additional executive appointments: Kevin Rychel, Vice President of Operations, a promotion for Rychel, a three-year Fuzzy’s Taco Shop veteran; Samir Wattar, Vice President of Supply Chain; and Laura Purser, Vice President of Marketing.
