Use your experience in sales and management
For many of us, the excitement of retail never goes away. Whether your experience is in clothing, restaurants, technology, or any other sector, retail provides an ever-changing work environment that keeps us on our toes, using different sales and management techniques each day. Knowing how to effectively sell a product and manage a team are two skills that make the biggest difference in our new franchisees. It is easy to learn bookkeeping systems and computer programs that make operating your store go smoothly, but management and sales are two of the most essential skills that you already possess.
Enjoy freedom in scheduling, product selection, and more
Working in corporate retail can be limiting. The company decides what products to sell, how to display them, what items are the priority, and that’s not to mention being at the mercy of someone else for your scheduling. Corporate retail gives little freedom to its workers, which can be discouraging.
