Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint has named Scott Goodrich as vice president of field operations and support.
According to a news release, Goodrich previously served as regional director of franchise operations at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. He was one of the first operational executives hired by Five Guys and helped grow the brand from 20 stores in early 2005 to more than 1,200 in 2013.
Prior, Goodrich spent 10 years managing operations at United Airlines. He worked through the operational ranks as one of the youngest Control Center Managers in the United five-hub system, including supervising the arrival and departure of more than 300 aircraft daily, the release said.
"At Uncle Maddio's we pride ourselves on hiring true industry leaders with a knack for developing operational systems, championing people and fostering culture," said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio's founder. "Scott's rich experience at some of the biggest names in the business will inevitably help us achieve our ultimate goal — targeted, but aggressive, growth and operational excellence."
