Operations, Training and Franchise

We not only own the franchise, we own and run stores. We run them profitably. We are able to do that because we know through experience what works and what doesn't.

We've made the mistakes, corrected them, tested the theories and put into practice what we preach every day in our own stores and throughout the system. And this is what we still do.

The Operations team provides the hands-on business experience that helps franchisees understand how to implement a cost-effective program in their stores by monitoring cost of goods, labor costs, equipment maintenance and hiring solid managers and personable barista team members.

Every franchisee and his or her store manager spends two weeks at the home offices and in a store going through a structured training course that includes product preparation, personnel development and store operations. In addition, our training team spends the opening day in the stores with the manager and barista team. The goal is to ensure that food products & drinks are made to our standards and that the people who prepare those provide the amazing experience customers will share with others.

Creating New Franchise Location Awareness through Marketing

Long before a new Focaccino Franchise location opens, the marketing team is creating awareness about the store with banners, social media and concentrated publicity. Once it's open, strategic and focused grand opening campaigns are implemented and are designed to create an instant customer base in the surrounding area.

The whole focus of marketing is to drive traffic to the stores. This is accomplished through on-site marketing, targeted direct mail programs and campaigns that are designed to bring in customers and keep them coming back. Campaigns are carefully tied together so that, regardless of where a customer learns of Focaccino, the message is the same.

Control of Franchise Products & Distribution

Early on in the franchising process, it became apparent that controlling products and distribution would be integral to the success of the entire Focaccino franchise. This created control over product quality, pricing and timely/consistent delivery to the stores.

Franchise Support Continues Beyond Opening Week Franchisees always have access to the Franchise Support Team for ongoing training, questions and advice. Often franchise meetings give franchisees and their management teams the opportunity to learn about new programs, sample products, receive training and share information.

Marketing communications are constant, training tips and videos are made available, and information is consistently shared with managers and their teams to help them grow and, just as importantly, allow franchise owners the time to focus on opening other locations.
