He was previously CEO of Huxtaburger.
Brisbane-based fast casual restaurant brand Motto Motto Japanese Kitchen announced the appointment of former Huxtaburger CEO Matt Fickling as head of franchising.
He joins Motto Motto after spending three and a half years with the Melbourne-based fast food chain, having penned a 10-store franchise expansion deal for the burger business with NSW investment group Yesdac.
“The opportunity to bring my executive experience and join an innovative and talented team at Motto Motto was too good to refuse. Motto Motto is joining a franchise market where we can solve some of the issues the sector is faced with through a compelling offer built on transparency, differentiation & unparalleled support,” Fickling said in a statement.
“He brings significant franchise and strategy experience coupled with his ability to contribute to our brand & marketing, supply chain & operations teams because of his multi-disciplined background as a successful chief executive,” Motto Motto founder and managing Director William Liu added.
Fickling will be responsible for the brand’s franchise, transforming the company’s supply chain and supporting brand and marketing initiatives.
Motto Motto currently has five stores across Brisbane and one in Sydney, with another site scheduled to open before the end of the year.
