Running your own business requires a lot of hard work. However, as the head of a franchise operation, you’ll have access to a team of experts who can make it a whole lot easier.
In fact, one of the biggest benefits of franchise ownership versus starting an independent business is the fact that you can leverage the experience and input of a franchise management team.
But how can a franchise management team help, and what, exactly, do the people on that team do? The truth is, it depends on the franchise group that you join. That’s because the structure of the team can vary widely, as can the qualifications of its members and the levels of support and guidance it provides. That’s why it is so important to select a franchise group with a tenured, experienced and active management team in place.
At Bin There Dump That, we’ve built one of the best franchise management teams on the planet so that we can help aspiring franchise operators like you build their franchise businesses. With more than 90 years of combined experience leading franchises, we know what it takes to help you succeed.
Here’s how we are structured and how we can help:
As the head of the franchise group, the chief executive officer leverages his or her real-world experience to lead in the areas of administration, operations, marketing and sales, strategic planning and franchise development. This person establishes the overall vision for the franchise while developing, fostering and demonstrating a corporate culture that supports the organization’s strategic growth. For example, at Bin There Dump That, our corporate culture emphasizes trust, integrity, teamwork and service.
The general manager oversees the day-to-day operations of the franchise at a system-wide level. He or she will manage the various departments — accounting, operations, marketing, quality control, etc. — to make sure all of them are on the same page.
The operations manager works directly with franchisees, providing operational analysis to ensure maximum productivity and profitability. He or she is also responsible for developing individualized growth strategies and for crafting training curriculums and coursework for new and existing franchisees.
Most great franchises start off as great concepts, and Bin There Dump That is no exception. Our original founder recognized a need for residential friendly dumpsters, and he built the original franchise location on his own. Now, he leverages his experience and intimate familiarity with the business to help new franchisees achieve the same level of success that he did.
Great franchise systems want to grow as badly as great franchise operators do. That’s why we have a designated expert who proactively connects with aspiring franchisees to make sure that they are a match for our company (and that we are a match for them).
These individuals act as liaisons between the franchise group and individual franchisees. They go out into the field to visit franchise operators and provide direct, hands-on support. They also facilitate marketing initiatives, business planning and financial reviews.
Now that you know what they do, we invite you to learn more about who they are. Check out our franchise management team bios to get to know the people who make our franchise system — and our franchise operators — so successful.
