WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO OWNING A FRANCHISE?
Owning a franchise allows the opportunity to go into business for yourself but not by yourself. Here are a few of the key benefits to joining the ASAP City franchise system:
A PROVEN BUSINESS STRATEGY
A significant benefit of owning a franchise is that it offers business owners a proven business strategy. While many new businesses struggle to develop a viable and profitable business plan, ASAP City has been successful with one of the fastest growing in the industry.
The equity in name recognition provides loyalty from consumers who trust in the name of the Company. It may take years for a startup business to establish a brand identity in the marketplace, and then there is no guarantee that consumers will recognize them as a leader in their industry. With its unique and innovative concept, ASAP City has earned a remarkable reputation in the food industry and is experiencing exponential growth as its chain of franchises expands.
PRE-ESTABLISHED SUPPLY LINES
Establishing dependable relationships with suppliers is another challenge new business owners often face. A lack of adequate and reliable suppliers can cripple your operations ability to do business, compromising the chance your business has to succeed. ASAP City has established relationships and pricing structure with our vendors to ensure the best product quality and price is always maintained.
TRAINING PROGRAMS AND EMPLOYEE POLICIES
Franchisors provide employee training programs for their Franchisee’s. ASAP’s 4-week training program equips our Franchise Partners and employee’s to perform their jobs efficiently and effectively. It exposes you to real operations and the rewards and challenges that you can expect on a daily basis. There is a strong emphasis on Customer Relations, Product Quality and food handling and hygiene procedures.
The greatest concern shared by franchisees, who may not have any experience in the restaurant industry, is being left to themselves without adequate support. ASAP City offers all its franchisees comprehensive assistance and support services, by means of ongoing training and regular status meetings. A manager is also assigned to each territory so as to offer daily assistance, as necessary, among other services. Furthermore, our Quality Assurance Department performs regular checks of every location to ensure that our elevated standards with regard to franchises, hygiene and quality are upheld.
