Fat Brands, the parent company of 17 restaurant concepts, has hired Jeremy Theisen as its first chief growth officer.

In this role, Theisen will spearhead growth of the development pipeline across the Fat Brands portfolio. This includes bringing new franchisees into the system and driving multiunit expansion with existing franchisees.

Theisen joins Fat Brands with over 20 years of experience in increasing revenue streams for startups in the restaurant sector. He most recently served as chief revenue officer for PathSpot, a hand hygiene maintenance system for the foodservice industry. He also previously held the role of chief sales officer for Punchh, a restaurant loyalty and engagement platform.

“Over the last several years, Fat Brands continues to reach new heights from a growth perspective,” says Fat Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn in a press release. “While our acquisition strategy has been a key mechanism for growth, we have also been heavily invested in building out our deep, organic pipeline … Jeremy is a great addition to our team to drive this growth forward exponentially in the years to come.”

Last year, Fat Brands spent nearly $1 billion in acquisitions, adding eight new restaurant brands. This year, the multiconcept company added one more, Nestle Toll House Cafe by Chip, which has been rebranded as Great American Cookies.
