BROOMFIELD Colo. Noodles & Company, a 210-unit fast-casual chain, said Wednesday it has hired advertising and marketing veteran Dan Fogarty as vice president of marketing.
Fogarty had worked with Noodles president, chairman and chief executive Kevin Reddy while they were both at Denver-based Chipotle Mexican Grill several years ago. Fogarty, who begins his new position May 26, will oversee all marketing, advertising, public relations and brand development for the Broomfield-based chain.
After more than 10 years at Chipotle, Fogarty spent the past two years helping to rebrand The Pump Energy Food, a healthful food chain in New York, which recently opened a new flagship restaurant in downtown Manhattan. He also has headed marketing for Potbelly Sandwich Works in Chicago.
