Do you want to enjoy the benefits of entrepreneurship with the stability of a brand and team? Opening a franchise may be the choice for you. At age 27, I opened my first Chicken Salad Chick franchise and saw such success that I opened a second location four months later. Prior to joining the Chicken Salad Chick family, I had never worked in a restaurant – I learned all aspects of the restaurant industry from the ground up. Hard work is the key to success and I worked diligently with the corporate team on paving my path with Chicken Salad Chick. It’s an around-the-clock job, yet I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I enjoy the work I do every day and am self-empowered to drive my businesses to success. All in all, by opening a franchise you are essentially buying into a brand that you can develop in a trade market. Your prosperity is determined by how much you are willing to invest in it. The catch is, you’re never alone. With Chicken Salad Chick, I have a built in support system with other franchisees, as well as the corporate team to lean on. Franchising has allowed me to do what I love while running my very own business.
