Fuzzy’s Taco Shop announces a 20-restaurant agreement with Mark Justice which will expand the brand’s footprint into Nevada. The Texas-based restaurant group is recognized for its Baja-style fare with 138 franchise-and corporate-owned locations in 19 states.
In addition to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Justice owns and operates IHOP restaurants in eight states through the restaurant management company Mr. Stax, Inc. Notably, Justice is the first IHOP franchisee to enter into a franchise agreement with Fuzzy’s Taco Shop after its acquisition by Dine Brands in 2022.
Justice was introduced to the concept at a Dine Brands conference in Washington D.C., where he had the opportunity to meet Damico.
Justice is eyeing Las Vegas for his first Fuzzy’s Taco Shop location, with expansion into other markets in Nevada over the next seven years.
On bringing Fuzzy’s Taco Shop to Las Vegas Justice says, “As a Las Vegas resident I feel very excited to bring Fuzzy’s Taco Shop to the community. The versatility of the concept appeals to guests from young families to third shift workers and everyone in between.”
