Q: How long have you owned a franchise?
I have owned a franchise for five years.
Q: Why franchising?
When starting up as a small business owner, there is so much to do. Franchising gives you some structure and takes care of some of the infrastructure you would need to create along the road.
Q: Why did you choose this particular franchise?
I have been cooking my entire life. It is very dear to me, so opening a Young Chefs Academy was the clear choice. I also admire the company’s founder, Julie Burleson. She has given franchise owners a chance to teach kids of all ages invaluable life lessons with a rewarding concept that is both fun and fulfilling.
Q: Where did you get most of your advice/do most of your research?
My research was much more than sitting online or looking through city records, although I did plenty of that. I got to know my community by volunteering in the area and speaking with other professionals and franchisees. I also relied on my previous experience in corporate America.
Q: What advice do you have for individuals who want to own their own franchise?
Do it! My advice for individuals who want to own their own franchise is to choose one that you are passionate about and go for it.
Q: What’s next for you and your business?
I plan to open multiple Young Chefs Academy locations in the area. Our curriculum doesn’t stop at teaching kids how to cook. It opens the door to a new world of emotional and intellectual maturity for our students. I am very passionate about the way this concept touches people’s lives in such a positive and lasting way, and I want to share that with more people.
GREAT! WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
