Preparation and information are critical factors needed for any business to succeed. At Extreme Pita, we recognize the need to spend quality time with each and every franchisee and we take pride in knowing that the support we provide our franchisees is one of a kind and dedicated, starting the moment you decide to fill out a franchise application form.
Once you’ve completed a pretty rigorous approval process we’ll see to it that you have every tool available to make your store a success. Promoting and developing our brand is crucial. You’ll get extensive marketing training, a user-friendly marketing manual and promotions & merchandising support. We also assist in developing and executing an opening advertising strategy and seasonal campaigns. We’ll even send field reps out (it’s an ongoing thing!) to offer suggestions, answer questions, consult, and provide continuous support.
We’ve got some pretty impressive buying power, too. Because of our volume, we can negotiate lower prices from vendors for our franchisees. And that means you get more time to focus on your store.
Location, Location, Location!!! Everyone knows the importance of a good location in the retail business. Although the Extreme Pita has final approval on all locations, we strongly encourage franchisees to become involved in the site selection process.
Our support team will help you analyze potential sites to ensure the best possibility for success of your business. Important aspects of site selection include traffic patterns, consumer demographics, signage availability, visibility, and more. Our success is ultimately dependent on yours.
Here at Extreme Pita we will work right beside you, making the process of opening your franchise so much easier. We will help you negotiate your lease and provide you with customized architectural and engineering drawings to ensure your standards are met.
We provide an extensive training program for all franchisees to ensure that when your store opens you are comfortable and experienced in all aspects of running a successful business. Our “Pita Pro In the Making” program provides you with 10 days at our headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, followed by another 2 weeks of in-store hands-on training. During the training we teach you what it takes to operate an efficient and successful Extreme Pita. The Training program involves both classroom and in-store training from experienced corporate trainers that have previously operated successful Extreme Pita franchises. During this period we will train you in everything from rolling the pita, scheduling and ordering, customer service, management control systems to the training of your new staff.
In addition our trainers will come to your store during the first week of business to help you prepare for your grand opening. They will assist in implementing marketing tools to get your name out in the community, they will help you and your employees get comfortable with daily operations, as well as behind the scenes help with scheduling, ordering, and training. The support doesn’t end there, each restaurant is assigned a business development consultant to provide on-going continuous support in every facet of your business.
