Foxtail Coffee Co. (Website) has announced the hiring of a new COO.


“With Foxtail, it’s really all about building on the foundation that has already been set,” Hufferd said. “The brand is growing fast, and I look forward to bringing my skillset to continue that and make the company even better for our Central Florida community.”

The rapidly expanding local coffee brand has hired John Hufferd, formerly of 4 Rivers Smokehouse to head their ship. Hufferd comes to Foxtail with nine years of scaling experience under his belt; he helped gro 4 Rivers to 14 locations in Florida and Atlanta.

Prior to his work with 4 rivers, Hufferd worked with Hillstone Restaurant Group for roughly ten years.

Foxtail’s former COO, David Sievers, resigned last October following allegations of sexual harassment.
