5 Ways to Completely Sabotage Your Dessert Franchise

While there’s no set way to run your dessert franchise, there are some definite steps you can in the right direction, as well as some definite steps you can take toward self-sabotage. During your purchase, opening, and running process, be sure to keep in mind the definite don’ts of owning a dessert franchise.

Ways to Sabotage Your Dessert Franchise

#1: Ignore Your Employees

If you truly want to sabotage your dessert franchise, disregard your employees at every chance you get. This is because apart from your customers, your employees are the lifeblood of your business. Happy employees are good employees, and good employees keep customers flowing and happy in return. So if your employees have any questions, comments, or suggestions for improvement – ignore them if you want to go belly-under.

#2: Ignore Your Customers

Just as it’s important to listen to your employees, it’s critical to listen to your customers, too. Was their food lackluster? Are they unhappy about the service they received? Keeping current business can arguably be more important than earning new business, so don’t forget the ones who are already loyal to your fast food franchise (unless of course you want to sabotage your business).

#3: Break the Rules

Businesses are governed by a series of regulations, especially when it comes to businesses that serve food. These regulations apply in everything from staffing to store cleanliness. If you don’t follow these rules, we assure you that your dessert franchise will go down quicker than you can keep track of.

#4: Dive Straight into the Deep End

If you’re a first-time business owner getting started with your dessert franchise, you’d be taking a big risk by not easing into it until you get a hang of the ropes. For example, buying three stores when you’ve never owned one before is a prime example in diving into the deep end. To make sure all your ducks are in a row, take your time and make sure you’re stable before taking on more responsibility.

#5: Stretch Yourself too Thin

Owning a business takes a lot of time, effort, and hard work. You should absolutely know this going into it so that you can be prepared. But what not to do is to take the full burden of responsibilities by yourself, while refusing to delegate responsibilities or ask for help when you need it. Take our word when we tell you that a single human is not equipped to run a dessert franchise without any help! Make it a team effort. To learn more about the opportunity, contact us today.
