Training & Operations

If you can think of what might happen in a day at your restaurant we’re going to cover it. And that means any given day. We’re going to provide you with a comprehensive, simple, easy-to-understand manual to guide you through every step of setting up and operating your restaurant. We get you (and your entire staff) ready with classroom and hands-on training, in our very own restaurant. There will be studying, quizzes, role-playing, homework assignments, group activities and a final exam. Our training program is designed to prepare you and your franchise for success on Day 1!
Franchise Operations Manual, POS, Customer Service and HR, it’s all covered. Menu specifications, grand opening guidelines, real estate procedures, branding/social media and marketing guidelines are included, too.
We guide you through tasks such as applying for a local business license and obtaining your Federal Tax ID number, to more detailed activities such as initial employee hiring.


We’ll act as a teacher here for your franchise. We’ll help with advertising, creative, PR, social media, web content and media buyers on-site to optimize the brand experience you’ll be creating in your new restaurant and the community. Which brings us to… the Community. Yes, we’ll dedicate time to community marketting because there is nothing as beautiful in the franchise industry as connecting, identifying and building customer loyalty with your community. It is a two-way street and we want to open both lanes to full capacity for you. Optimal flexibility, the ability to turn projects around quickly, economic efficiency, and driving sales is our marketing goal for you.
