“It’s important for you to be fully committed in the day-to-day operations for the business. To be honest, we all go into franchising knowing that the process has been tested and it is less risky for the business to fail. However, you are responsible for managing your store and making sure that the business grows.

Managers are just there to assist you in running the day-to-day business and relieve some pressure off your workload.”
