Getting a small business up and running is no small task, which is why the Mucho Burrito brand helps ensure a smooth start with robust training and ongoing support.
There are dozens of things to remember and act on every day when you’re launching a new business. It’s easy to forget something, or let a deadline slip, which is why Mucho Burrito Mexican cuisine franchise owners get a lot of support up front — and down the road as well.
In addition to strong onboarding and training around how to operate the business, Mucho Burrito franchise owners also tap into the skill set of an experienced coach. Meet Jon Valdemar, one of Mucho Burrito’s Business Development Consultants, and learn how he helps franchise owners keep their eye on core operational tasks in those crucial early weeks and months:
What does a Business Development consultant do?
We are a resource for franchise owners. A lot of our franchisees are new to food service, and so I bring my 30-plus years of restaurant experience to them when they call and say something is happening, what should they do? I point them in the right direction, and I act as a liaison between our corporate team and our franchise owners.
Where are franchise owners in their journey when you first meet them?
I meet them during the development process; sometimes I get involved in screenings so that we can properly assess if this is the right fit. The restaurant business is not for everyone. Usually, I come in when their store is being built and they have been scheduled for training. I will reach out and I’ll guide them through the process. I provide a calendar and also provide a countdown manual so they know what’s coming between that first meeting and their grand opening.
What are some of the qualities that really make a standout franchise owner?
A Mucho Burrito franchise owner needs to be a people person, to be passionate about the business and passionate about food, sales and guest service.
What makes Mucho Burrito a different kind of brand?
Owning a restaurant is about three things: Good food, good service and a clean environment. If you can master those three things, you’ll be successful. We have really good food and we’re all about cooking fresh food. Franchise owners and employees talk to guests in the dining room. You make that connection and they’ll likely come back. And we have beautiful restaurants that people enjoy visiting. We don’t hurry them in and out.
