DO I NEED TO HAVE ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN OWNING A RESTAURANT TO OPERATE A SQUISITO PIZZA & PASTA FRANCHISE?
You don't need any prior experience in the restaurant industry, but it would certainly help. We understand that the majority of new franchise owners do not have prior experience and Squisito Pizza and Pasta provides an excellent training program and all the tools you will need to be successful. Additionally, our team will be at your location as you open your restaurant.
HOW LONG WILL I BE AT TRAINING?
Our initial training program consists of approximately four weeks of classroom and on-site training at one of our affiliate restaurants in Maryland. We request that you and two of your mangers attend training. In addition, we will provide you with one of our trained team members at your site for up to 14 days (to be scheduled around your opening).
DOES SQUISITO FRANCHISE ENTERPRISES, INC. OFFER A MULTI-UNIT FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY?
Absolutely! We understand that you may want the flexibility to open multiple locations and have complete control of your territory. You are provided a protected territory as part of your franchise agreement. We will also provide you a first right of refusal for adjacent territories at the time of your franchise closing.
WILL YOU HELP ME WITH MY INITIAL MARKETING STRATEGY AND GRAND OPENING?
Yes. We will assist you with all aspects of your opening and we will be in attendance.
