Welcome to the “Franchise Secrets” podcast …where we share the secrets surrounding the Franchise industry. We speak with both Franchisees and Franchisors and dig deep to find the secret to having a highly successful franchised business. This Podcast is a show for Franchisees. We interview basically anyone who will share their story in Franchising - sharing is educating. Being a Franchisee can be a lonely job but listening to those in the industry makes you part of the "in-crowd". The "in-crowd" who win all the awards at conferences; who the franchisor refers to all the time; who seem to have time to play golf; who have the designer handbags/cars; and who have a team that runs the shop like a well-oiled machine. They are generally on the franchisor’s reference group, get to trial the new products, and always seem to have the biggest sales and highest average transaction values (ATVs). They are the franchisees who always have a swarm of fellow franchisees around them at conferences asking them how they get such great results. They seem to have years of experience behind them, or they were lucky to get in early and get the “good” shops and the “good” positions. These are High Performance franchisees. Our aim is to inform busy franchisees by sharing knowledge. We share SECRETS 1. What is THE secret to getting the right employee 2. What is THE secret to getting “me” time? What is the activity how often do you do it, do you schedule it 3. What is your “One Thing” that you do everyday 4. What s THE secret to keeping on top of Cashflow And then ask for these TIPS 1. What is your “Franchisee Tip” 2. What would be the one question you would ask your Franchisor 3. What is the one question you ask when interviewing staff 4. What is the one book you would recommend listeners read Sit back and listen to the show hosted by Franchisee Cheerleader herself, Elizabeth Gillam
