Fransmart, the leading franchise development firm in the country, recently welcomed veteran Five Guys Burgers & Fries executive and operations expert Scott Goodrich to its newly formed consultant group, King Street Advisors. With more than 14 years of franchise development and operations experience, Goodrich will serve as Chief Operating Officer and partner in King Street Advisors, supporting expansion efforts for the firm’s impressive roster of emerging franchisors.
Goodrich previously served as regional director and vice president of franchise operations for Five Guys Burgers & Fries, where he developed operational and training procedures and acted as a key architect behind the brand’s massive franchise system growth. Over the course of eight years, Goodrich helped grow the brand from 25 units to over 1,200 throughout the U.S. and Canada.
In 2013, Goodrich created his restaurant consulting company, WSGC LLC, and successfully consulted several franchisee groups to improve operations, revenue growth and store acquisitions.
“No other restaurant franchise has done what Five Guys Burger & Fries has done in the last 10 to 15 years,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart and partner in King Street Advisors. “If you want the success like Five Guys, then you need to follow their lead – success leaves clues! We are fortunate to have Scott as a partner in King Street and look forward to the value he will provide for our brands.”
Known as the top franchise development firm in the country, Fransmart’s portfolio brands have opened over 3,000 restaurants in 45 states and more than 35 countries.
