Here are a few highlights from this episode:
What is the most important aspect of the guest experience?
“You have to talk to a guest. If there’s an issue with their meal, it must be discussed right away. It has to be handled right there on the spot in a casual manner. We’re still talking about Burgers and fries, you know we’re not trying to solve the world’s problems. So it has to be done in a fun, casual way. But you got to talk to your guests.”
What was the most difficult jump in franchise number?
“It wasn’t a specific number. The challenge really set in when it became location based. We always had to always have and continue to have a really good team that can manage operations and oversee operations. Help franchisees, help operators, you know, make their restaurants successful.”
