The first few months of each new year are historically busy times for most franchise companies. As we’ve outlined previously, many adults see business ownership as an important goal to attain in a new year and they start to take the steps necessary to explore all business possibilities. One of the best ways to vet new opportunities is to take the steps necessary to personally attend a private franchise Discovery Day.
Our Shuckin’ Shack Franchise Development team has been making many changes to our Discovery Day event, as outlined in this recent article. While the article presumes you’ve already been invited to our private event, the reality is there are a few steps that need to be completed before a Discovery Day invitation is extended. Most notable is an application process that allows us to determine if a franchise candidate is focused on a target market we also have in mind, and that the candidate is financially qualified to development that market with the number of restaurants we view as a competitive requirement.
When it comes to prospective partners attending one of the nine Discovery Day’s we’ve scheduled for 2019, our Vice President of Franchise Development, Mario Piccinin (photo below), is the primary gatekeeper. Over the years, he’s established a proven process for collecting the documents required for our franchise awards process. We’ve detailed those requirements here, but be sure to contact Mario directly if you have any questions!
For those serious about being considered for a Shuckin’ Shack Franchise in 2019, and attending next week’s Discovery Day, Mario would like you all to know that the deadline for submitting your application and other financial records is the close of business this Thursday, February 14th!
For those in the Midwest and considering a new, emerging opportunity within the fresh seafood niche and with a great coastal vibe, we have established a special target market page for Louisville, KY.
