California-based Project Pie has named former Qdoba executive Todd Owen as its vice president of Franchise Development, a position designed to drive continued franchise growth for the fast casual pizza concept.

Owen brings 18 years of experience in franchise development to Project Pie. Most recently, he served as VP of Franchise Development at Qdoba Restaurant Corporation, where he led the growth of the franchise side of business from a 60-unit organization to 630 system locations in about 11 years.

Prior to joining Qdoba, he worked with brands such as Taco Bell and Pepsi-Cola in various franchise development, sales and management capacities. His franchise development experience includes new business development, non-traditional development, strategic planning and real estate site analysis.

"We're looking to Todd to properly grow and expand this unique brand throughout the world," said James Markham, CEO and Founder of Project Pie. "We have proven the Project Pie business model can succeed in both domestic and foreign markets, and we're eager to keep our momentum going as the leader and most experienced brand in the segment."

Throughout the remainder of 2013, Project Pie will continue to grow with several new domestic and international locations planned to open in Los Angeles County, Boulder, Colo., Manhattan and the Philippines. Currently, the brand has two locations at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and one in the Hillcrest neighborhood in San Diego. There is also one franchise location in Mandaluyong, Philippines.
