FRANSMART Hires Michael D'Arezzo, Former VP of Franchise Development at CKE Restaurant

The Global Franchise Development Professional Will Focus on Growing the World’s Next Great Chains

Fransmart, the leading global franchise developer behind the explosive growth of The Halal Guys and Five Guys Burgers & Fries, has brought on industry veteran Michael D’Arezzo. As part of the Fransmart team, D’Arezzo will assist Fransmart’s Founder and President, Dan Rowe, in developing and growing the company’s existing portfolio of emerging restaurant brands.

D’Arezzo brings with him more than 30 years of experience growing successful franchised brands like Carl’s Jr/ Hardee’s, Burger King, Mrs. Field’s, and Baskin Robbins to markets across the globe.

“It is refreshing to represent a portfolio of brands that are so greatly differentiated from the market’s current offerings and status quo,” says D’Arezzo. “I feel privileged to join Fransmart and its founders, and to play a part in growing the world’s next great chains. It’s the strongest portfolio of emerging concepts I’ve seen, all of which have strong ROIs and are highly desirable to any franchisee, developer, and investor looking for their next opportunity.”

“To work with some of the best franchise restaurant brands, we need the top franchise development professionals, like Michael, on our team,” said Dan Rowe. “His global franchise development experience working with some of the largest franchise restaurant brands in the world, and personal track record for aiding to their growth, is a gift to our portfolio and we are expecting great things from this addition.”
