Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s new leadership is clear.

Industry veteran Paul Damico announced on his LinkedIn profile today that he’s the brand’s new CEO, and the fast-casual chain confirmed the news.

“Proud to announce I’m the new CEO of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop,” Damico writes. “I’ll be based in Atlanta and traveling to the headquarters in Irving, TX frequently. Thrilled to be back in the Tex-Mex game.”

According to his LinkedIn profile, Damico most recently served as CEO for Global Franchise Group, the parent company of Great American Cookie, Hot Dog on a Stick, Marble Slab Creamery, Pretzelmaker and Round Table Pizza, where he worked for nearly a year and a half.

Prior to that, he was the CEO of Naf Naf Grill, president of Moe’s Southwest Grill, and president of FOCUS Brands, which has a portfolio that includes Carvel Ice Cream, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Cinnabon, McAlister’s Deli, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Schlotzsky’s Deli.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop got its start in 2003 in Fort Worth, Texas, and since expanded to more than 100 locations across the country. The brand recently rolled out a new prototype, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop Taqueria, which dishes out much of the same menu items as its sister concept but from a smaller footprint.
