Dallas — Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has named Jessica Wescott as chief financial officer. She previously served as the executive vice president of finance for the Baja-inspired franchise.
Wescott began her career in wealth management before moving into the franchising world and working her way up to vice president of development and finance with MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes. In January 2018, Wescott was named executive vice president of Finance at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, where she oversaw many aspects of financial operations, as well as marketing and technology strategies, and fed her love of working with franchisees.
Wescott has also begun working on Fuzzy’s strategy for 2020, including how to best support multi-unit franchisees. In fact, 79% of all Fuzzy’s openings since 2017 have been with current partners looking to expand their footprint.
“Our partners are incredibly passionate about the brand,” says Wescott. “Both our ownership group and our leadership team are heavily invested in working with our partners and ensuring we remain franchisee-centric as we continue to grow. I’m excited for the opportunity to continue to impact that culture and be part of the success that Fuzzy’s has enjoyed so far — and will continue to have in the future.”
