For now, here’s a look at a few of the most important next steps you’ll take if we mutually decide to move forward.
Prepare for Our First Meeting
Don’t worry, our first meeting will be friendly and low-pressure! It’s a good chance for you to get to know more about us, and to ask us any questions you have about running one of our restaurants. Make the most of the experience by organizing your questions so that we have the opportunity to give you all of the information you’ll need in order to make this important decision. We’ll also have a few questions for you – we’ll want to know about your financial background, your career experience, and about your interest in starting a healthy food franchise!
Deciding on a Restaurant Type
One thing to consider carefully is exactly which type of Baja Fresh restaurant you’d like to open. Our healthy food franchise restaurants can be started from scratch, or existing restaurants can be purchased. There are different benefits to each of these restaurant types. For example, pre-existing locations are ready to go, making it as simple as possible for a new franchisee to step in. On the other hand, Baja Fresh Express locations are smaller and require a less substantial initial investment. This decision will inform your next steps!
Completing Your Initial Training
You’ll need five to eight weeks of initial training (depending on the concept you choose) in order to learn what you need to know to operate a Baja Fresh healthy food franchise. Through a combination of classroom and hands-on training, you’ll learn everything from how to order ingredients, manage your staff, prepare food, and more! Best of all, we’ll work with you right in your own location to apply everything you’ve learned. With our help, you’ll open your doors feeling confident and ready for business.
Preparing for Your Grand Opening
There is a lot of preparation that goes into a grand opening, and we’ll help you make the most of yours. One of the most important things a business owner can do to prepare for a grand opening is to disseminate a targeted marketing campaign to reach out to their potential new customers. Our experts will work with you to develop a great marketing campaign to spread the word about your new healthy food franchise location! We’ll also work hand-in-hand with you as you prepare to open, helping you ensure that your staff is well prepared to help you manage your new restaurant.
These are just a few of the important next steps to consider now that you’ve decided to get started on opening a Baja Fresh healthy food franchise. Contact us today to take the first steps!
