MOOYAH Burgers Fries & Shakes has announced that it has hired Wyatt Hurt to leads its operational team.
As the new senior director of operations, Hurt's objective is to advance the day-to-day operational system for franchises and streamline procedural process development.
Hurt started with CiCi's Pizza when it had just nine restaurants. Today, it approximately 365 locations. Hurt then went to work for a franchise group within CiCi's and helped to grow unit counts from 17 to 66 restaurants in just seven years.
"All of this boils down to being ready for major growth. Today, MOOYAH has 35 restaurants, but I'm confident that in just a few years, there will be hundreds. This company has a great foundation with experts at the wheel and has already experienced major growth in a short time. I believe that the next few years will be explosive," Hurt said.
This year, MOOYAH has opened nearly a dozen restaurants with plans to expand in new markets over the next several months. MOOYAH restaurants are under development in new states, including Alabama, Oklahoma and Montana, and the brand plans to expand its footprint in Kansas, California, Connecticut, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas.
