With an extensive background in the franchise industry, Yarusso will help propel the brand forward as it continues to grow both nationally and internationally.
After serving in the United States Air Force, Yarusso began his professional journey in the franchising world.

While this is a change in my professional life, I know the Mayweather team will also be helping me stay healthy too. I am thrilled to join the leadership team and start working closely with everyone that makes this franchise a success.”
