Just like burgers, fries and shakes, some trios are real game changers. That is definitely the case with our newest Franchise Partners, Agape Management! The trio, comprised of seasoned food and beverage executives Sean McCullough, Greg Stevens and Ted Beaman are committed to opening 10 new MOOYAH locations within the Dallas-Ft. Worth area as well as remodeling two existing locations as they assume ownership. The new locations will bring more than 250 new jobs to the Metroplex.
The longtime friends formed Agape Management to implement their management philosophy of “Lead with Love” in promising growth brands and select turnaround opportunities within the restaurant and entertainment sectors. The team was aware of MOOYAH’s innovation and development efforts led by our company President Tony Darden and believed that the MOOYAH mission aligned perfectly with Agape’s objectives.
“Because of our shared values and history, we wanted to become MOOYAH Franchise Owners together,” said Stevens. “We’re always looking for brands and businesses where we can use our expertise, and MOOYAH was an easy fit for us because we knew the leadership team. We knew the product and the commitment to its Guests and Team Members, and that aligned really well with our values. We saw an opportunity to build on the brand’s Dallas-Fort Worth footprint and take growth in the area to the next level.”
The group is looking forward to bringing MOOYAH’s delicious offerings to the community, but that’s not all. Agape plans to partner with the local community by creating 250 new jobs and being involved in local events that raise funds for community initiatives like local PTA and soccer clubs, according to McCullough.
“We know MOOYAH as Guests, we love it from that perspective, and we want to be engaged in our communities as great representatives for the brand,” said Beaman. “And since the company brought in new ownership a few years ago, MOOYAH has done a lot to benefit the Franchise Owners — including improving the quality of the product and enhancing the Franchise Owner experience. We see MOOYAH as a very high-quality brand that hasn’t gotten enough attention yet, and now is an opportune time to get in on the action. The leadership team has always been focused on improving the Guest experience, and even more so now during the pandemic. We want to be able to partner with them on that.”
Agape’s first DFW remodel location, Frisco, TX (Main Street), will reopen on December 7th and their first new location in Q1 2021.
