Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has picked up franchise veteran Nick Booras to help expand the brand as its senior vice president of franchise sales.

Booras most recently served as senior director of franchise development at Focus Brands where he was responsible for selling all seven of the company’s concepts in the southwest region. Before that, he served as director of franchise development for Focus Brands’ McAlister’s Deli. He also previously worked in franchise sales for Corner Bakery Cafe and Boston Pizza.

“Nick’s expansive network and ability to connect brands with qualified franchisees is critical to our success as we work to achieve our aggressive growth goals over the next five years,” says Paul Damico, CEO of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, in a press release.

In his new role, Booras will work to attract franchisee candidates and experienced multi-unit developers. He expects immediate growth in Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri.

Texas-based Fuzzy’s Taco Shop currently has nearly 150 franchise- and corporate-owned locations in 17 states. Last October, Damico announced plans to double the size of the eatery in five years.
