Many fast-casual franchises promise that they’ll support their franchisees, but a quick review of the fine print reveals that they actually don’t offer much assistance. As you research healthy fast food franchise opportunities, be sure to pay careful attention to the training and support resources every franchisor promises to provide. The best place to look to review support systems is in the franchise disclosure document, where franchisors spell out exactly what franchisees are entitled to. For your convenience, we’ve broken down a few of the most significant resources we have in place right here on our website. For a more complete look at what we have to offer, request a copy of our franchise disclosure document.
The Franchise Resource Center
The Franchise Resource Center is a consolidated support system that helps franchisees with a number of day-to-day issues. They help franchisees develop targeted marketing campaigns to generate a buzz in their community. They also help with issues like analyzing and controlling food and labor costs, so franchisees can stay on-track to grow their business as effectively as possible. They also manage supplier relationships, helping to ensure that franchisees have access to the best ingredients at reasonable prices. As you can see, the Franchise Resource Center makes it easy for our franchisees to keep their business running smoothly.
As a Pita Pit franchisee, you’ll take part in a comprehensive training program that’s designed to prepare you to operate your new restaurant. We know that learning and doing are two separate things, so we send one of our Systems Specialists directly to your location to help you apply what you’ve learned as you prepare for opening. The Systems Specialist will help train your new staff and get everything in great working order. They’ll also get to know your area in order to design a customized marketing strategy for your healthy fast food franchise. Once your grand opening is over, you’ll be left to manage your business on your own. However, we are always just a phone call away to provide you with guidance and feedback. Best of all, your Systems Specialist will return periodically to check on your progress.
Any restaurant owner will agree that marketing is crucial to growing a new business. When you open a Pita Pit fast-casual franchise, you’ll have access to a cache of marketing materials that we’ve already developed. The experts on our corporate team have years of experience in developing marketing campaigns, and our third-party relationships with advertisers give us access to a wide range of channels and mediums. At Pita Pit, we’re well-known for our tongue-in-cheek advertisements that use humor and bold images to catch the eye of potential customers.
When you open a healthy fast food franchise, vendor relationships are critical. You need trustworthy, reliable vendors to regularly replenish your stock of fresh meats and vegetables. Without great vendors, the quality of your menu will suffer. Independent restaurant owners often find that locating vendors and maintaining strong relationships can be difficult. One of the benefits of working with a national brand like Pita Pit is that we’re well established in the industry. We connect our franchisees with vendors they can rely on to keep their stores well-stocked with the quality ingredients their customers expect. When problems with vendors arise, our Franchise Resource Center is there to help.
These are just a few of the ways we’re proud to support our fast-casual franchise owners. Visit our training page to see what you’ll learn if you become a franchise owner!
