Bubbakoo’s Burritos on Tuesday promoted Christopher Ives to the CFO post.
Ives previously served as VP of finance and development at the 62-unit fast-casual chain since 2019.
Ives has extensive franchising experience, helping launch the Frutta Bowls chain in 2017.
At New Jersey-based Bubbakoo’s, he has worked with franchisees and has overseen many aspects of finance, technology and development, the company said.
Ives said he spends half of his day consulting with franchisees.
“Our partners are incredibly passionate about the brand, and I get to be part of the team that helps drive their success and ensure we remain franchise-centric to continue to drive internal growth,” he said in a statement.
Bubbakoo’s was founded in 2008 and serves a menu of burritos, bowls, quesadillas and more.
Ives has had a positive impact on the brand since he joined, co-founder Paul Altero said in a statement.
“His analytical approach to our overall strategy and growth goals has resulted in increased sales, store unit profitability and internal development growth for our partners,” Altero said.
