Mark Boohaker Returns To Barberitos For Executive Role

Boohaker named Vice President of Brand Development and Technology.

June 26, 2018 // // Athens, Ga - After a 10-year hiatus, Mark Boohaker has rejoined the Barberitos family as Vice President of Brand Development and Technology. Boohaker’s main area of focus will be same-store sales. In addition, in order to better serve and connect the restaurant’s franchise community, he will also be working to integrate Barberitos’ online resources over a single platform.

Boohaker began his professional career in 2001 as a grill cook at the Barberitos in downtown Athens. In the years following, he was promoted multiple times and eventually helped establish the company’s operational and marketing standards. After seven years with Barberitos, Boohaker decided to pursue other opportunities in the restaurant industry, including with the RITA Restaurant Corp in Madison, GA, and with Your Pie Franchising in Athens, GA. Notably, Boohaker is credited with conceptualizing and rolling out the latter’s million-dollar store operational model.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Mark back on our team,” says Downing Barber, CEO and founder of Barberitos. “His experience, work ethic and successful track record will ensure that Barberitos will continue to be among the fastest-growing restaurant franchises in the country.”
