Mo'Bettahs has named a new CFO.

Clay Hansen named CFO of Mo’Bettahs

Clay Hansen most recently served as CIO for Greenix and also spent 10 years with restaurant chain Café Rio.

Mo’Bettahs Hawaiian-Style Food has named Clay Hansen as its new chief financial officer. Hansen joins the Utah-based Hawaiian barbecue concept with experience in finance, IT, and strategy.

He most recently served as chief information officer for Greenix Pest Control. Prior, he was vice president of marketing and business development, then vice president of strategy. During his time at Greenix, the company’s revenue doubled from $60 million to $120 million.

“Clay will be an incredible asset to our team,” CEO Rob Ertmann said in a statement. “He has the unique perspective of being both detail-oriented and big-picture focused. Our culture here at Mo’ Bettahs is fast-paced  and growth-minded, and Clay will fit right in.”

 Hansen’s hire comes as Mo’ Bettahs targets an ambitious expansion plan. The company currently has 52 locations in seven states, along with two digital kitchens in Kansas City and Dallas. For the remainder of 2024,  Mo’ Bettahs plans to add 10 additional stores and three digital kitchens.

 “Mo’ Bettahs is an exciting brand with a phenomenal growth trajectory and strategy. And while it might sound a bit cliché, it’s the people who initially drew me in — from the team at Savory to the entire team at Mo’   Bettahs. They really do practice the aloha spirit they preach,” Hansen said in a statement.

Mo’ Bettahs was founded in Bountiful, Utah in 2008 by Kimo and Kalani Mack and became part of Savory Fund’s portfolio of brands in 2017.
