PrimoHoagies has hired Lauren Tesche-Johnson as director of business development. In her previous role, she served as the sales director for ThirdWaveRX, a healthcare cost-savings company, and is now tasked with helping to propel PrimoHoagies’ brand growth through franchise development.
“My goal is to bring a fresh perspective to PrimoHoagies and build on its already impressive franchise development. I’m dedicated to maintaining and bringing the high standards that PrimoHoagies is known for to new communities to enjoy,” Tesche-Johnson in a press release. “I look forward to connecting with potential franchise prospects looking for an established and successful business ownership opportunity.”
After surpassing the 100-location milestone earlier this year and with another 70 locations in development, PrimoHoagies is on course to have at least 115 stores open by the end of 2023.
