FRANCHISEE SUCCESS
At the end of the day, your franchisees’ success is your success. Learn practical tactics you can use to drive profitability and improve overall performance for your franchisees and your entire system, including:

  • What franchisees really need from FBCs
    • Vision planning for franchisees
      • Peer performance groups
      • Marketing and technology execution
    • Supporting multi-unit franchisees
BUSINESS COACHING
Franchise Business Coaches are the direct link between franchise owners’ success and the success of the system. We’ll dive into tactics FBCs can use to help everyone win, including:

  • Earning franchisees’ trust
  • Franchisee onboarding
  • Key elements of a successful field visit
  • Budgeting and financial forecasting
Change Management
Without effective change management, your organization can get bogged down, costing valuable time and resources. We’ll workshop ideas around:

  • Innovation in technology and people to improve support

    • Getting franchisee buy-in
    • Navigating private equity involvement
CULTURE
All franchises have a company culture—good or bad—that defines your brand and impacts everything from franchisor-franchisee relations to employee satisfaction to brand reputation. We’ll go beyond creating “warm and fuzzies” and dig into critical areas for success including:

  • Creating a culture of learning and collaboration
  • Balancing “warm and fuzzy” with “manage and measure”
  • Identifying and getting buy-in to your core values
  • Aligning company, team, and franchisee goals
  • Helping franchisees creating a culture mindset for their teams
PEOPLE
Labor costs, employee recruitment and staff retention are the three greatest areas of risk for franchisors over the next three years. We’ll share creative ideas for how to mitigate those risks, including:

  • Recruiting and hiring in the age of the flexible workforce
    • Helping franchisees with understaffing and turnover (without crossing the joint employer line)
    • Turning employees into brand ambassadors
    • Measuring and improving employee engagement 
LEADERSHIP
How do you lead with influence? We’ll dig into how to get buy-in from franchisees, staff, FBCs, customers become a more effective leader in the areas that matter most to your system’s success, including:
