Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, a fast-casual restaurant brand serving Mexican cuisine, has entered two multi-unit development agreements.

The agreements will see the launch of 40 new restaurants in the Arizona and Texas markets.

The deals were signed with Fuzzy’s Taco Shop franchisee Marc Rogers of Rogers Restaurant Group and with a new franchisee, Hnreck Nazarian of Nazarian Global Enterprises (NGE)

The new restaurants are planned to be opened over the next eight years in the two US states.

Rogers Restaurant Group has committed to opening 15 new restaurants in Arizona, particularly in the Phoenix area, by 2032.

The move builds on Fuzzy’s existing portfolio, which began with the first shop in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2011. Rogers Restaurant Group currently operates 16 Fuzzy’s locations across Colorado.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop president Paul Damico said: “Fuzzy’s has transformed from a single neighbourhood taco shop with a chill vibe in Fort Worth, Texas into an emerging, nationally franchised concept with an exceptional bar programme and a Baja-inspired menu that our guests have come to crave.

“As we prepare to grow Fuzzy’s Taco Shops throughout Arizona and Texas, we’re excited to work with existing and new franchisees to help lead the growth.”
