QDOBA Mexican Eats announced it has expanded its Franchise Sales department with the addition of Mitchell Lee as its Director of Franchise Development. Mitchell’s hiring comes during a period of growth from QDOBA, which continues to expand across the United States and Canada.
“The addition of Mitchell, a proven leader in restaurant franchise development, reinforces the growth mentality of our leadership team and franchisees within the QDOBA system,” says Christine Willis, SVP of Franchise Development Operations at QDOBA. “QDOBA continues to resonate with the multi-unit franchise community, with franchisees looking at diversifying their holdings with a proven fast casual brand on the rise.”
Before joining QDOBA, Lee was with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, where he focused on traditional development and led the non-traditional sector. During his time there, Lee boosted signed agreements by twenty percent, securing close to 80 new agreements for the brand, both domestically and internationally across Canada.
“My passion is working with franchisees and ensuring they have a corporate resource that supports them from the first conversation to store opening,” says Lee. “When meeting with QDOBA, it was clear they shared that same passion. I’m looking forward to playing a role in the brand’s continued growth and supporting operators as they bring QDOBA’s signature flavors to guests across North America and beyond.”
