History

Baja Fresh is operated through Fresh Enterprises, Inc., which is based in California. The first restaurant was opened in August 1990 by Jim and Linda Magglos. They opened this restaurant in Newbury Park, California. The establishment started franchising in 1995. In 1998, the Magglos sold a controlling interest in Fresh Enterprises, Inc. to Greg Dollarhyde and Pete Siracusa. Dollarhyde and Siracusa worked towards re-capitalizing the company. They also purchased shares from other investors to gain control over the restaurant. Dollarhyde eventually became the Chief Executive Officer and Siracusa became the Chairman. Jim Magglos remained as the President.

Dollarhyde remained committed to maintaining quality control of the restaurant. As a result, design was a priority over expansion. Systems were implemented to ensure integrity of the supply chain and consistency among the restaurants. Once the foundation was laid to maintain quality control, the restaurant was able to expand without compromising its principles. In 2002, the company signed a franchise agreement with Northern Foods Services, Inc. for the Greater Boston area. Northern Foods agreed to develop at least 14 restaurants in five years. The restaurant also entered into a franchise agreement with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises to develop 16 restaurants in the Chicago area.

Wendy’s International purchased 100% of Fresh Enterprises, Inc. in 2002. By the end of 2002, the establishment had 210 units and revenues had reached the $250 million mark. However, same-store sales started to decline by 4.6 percent in 2003. The slow economy and the restaurant’s rapid expansion were said to be factors in the decline. There was also saturation in the southern California market where the restaurants were inadvertently competing with each other for customers. Dollarhyde was eventually replaced by William Moreton as chief executive officer in April 2004. Moreton reviewed the operations to assess the store’s decline. He then began to implement measures for improvement.

In 2004, the company decided to close five underperforming restaurants, and also slow down plans for expansion. As a result of the closures, the company exited a number of markets in the U.S. It also reduced the size of its menu and improved its advertising as ways towards improvement. The chain also started to rotate some items on and off the menu as a way of introducing new products and keeping the menu fresh. In 2006, BF Acquisitions Holdings LLC purchased the chain from Wendy’s International, Inc. with the goal of reviving the struggling chain. Today, the restaurant has over 250 locations within the United States as well as other countries, such as Dubai and Singapore.
