“[Mineral Wells] has a great small-town feel,” Tate said. “The store in Mineral Wells has a big chance to be successful and serve that community. It’s just an awesome place... and I think the city has embraced us.”
Both Bush and Tate said they have been pleased with the overall success of their campaign to feed hungry kids.
“I’m overwhelmed with the response that we’ve gotten from our guests and everybody that’s bought into the program and is willing to help out,” Bush said. “I’m amazed. We’ve never done anything like this before, so I really didn’t know what to expect; but it has exceeded our expectations.
As for Fuzzy’s, Bush said the brand will continue to grow and open stores.
“We’re going to open as many stores as we can find the right people to partner with and whatever pace that is, then that’s how quick we’re going to grow,” he said. “We’ve survived now 10 years and I will guarantee you we’ll be around for another 10 years.”
