Former Taco Bueno COO Tony Darden was hired to serve as president and COO for MOOYAH Burgers, Fries and Shakes. He replaces Michael Mabry, who earlier this month was named chief development officer for Fuzzy’s Tacos.

The addition of Darden comes on the heels of MOOYAH making several other key hires, including John Hunter as director of supply chain, Scott Haehnel as real estate and development manager and Coleman Williams as construction project manager.

Prior to Taco Bueno, Darden spent more than a decade at Panera Bread and more than 15 years at Bennigan’s.
