In an exciting new partnership announced on Season 15 of ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank,” Robert Herjavec, renowned entrepreneur and investor, has teamed up with Buena Papa Fry Bar. This collaboration aims to bring the unique flavors, customer experience, and business model of Buena Papa to enthusiasts across the nation through an accelerated franchise expansion.
Buena Papa Fry Bar, known for serving Latin-inspired meals on fries, caught the attention of several sharks during their pitch. However, it was Herjavec’s vision for scaling retail franchises and his passion for the brand that solidified the partnership.
Herjavec, no stranger to successful ventures, sees the brand as a standout among fast-casual restaurants. “When I tasted what Buena Papa Fry Bar had to offer and saw their impressive market traction, I knew this was a golden opportunity. They’ve managed to turn something as simple as fries into a whole-meal experience. I’m thrilled to be part of this journey and help them expand their franchise program nationwide,” says Robert Herjavec, Entrepreneur & Shark Tank Investor.
Echoing this enthusiasm, James and Johanna Windon, co-founders of Buena Papa Fry Bar, shares, “We’ve always believed in the potential of Buena Papa Fry Bar, and having Robert on board is a testament to our vision and hard work. With his experience and mentorship, we’re confident that Buena Papa Fry Bar will become a household name in cities across the country.”
They already have 9 franchises signed. Prospective franchisees and customers alike can expect a seamless blend of Buena Papa’s commitment to quality and Herjavec’s business acumen.
