WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER!
In the first part of the Press’d training program Franchisees spend 4 weeks working in a certified Press’d training restaurant where they will cover all aspects of daily restaurant operations including kitchen prep, line service, catering fulfillment, cash handling, customer service and facility maintenance.
In part two of the Press’d training program Franchisees spend 3-5 days at head office learning the business side of owning a Press’d franchise. The focus during part two of training will be on management tasks such as hiring, training, scheduling, ordering, cash controls, inventory, cost control (food & labour), payroll, period end administration and business analysis.
On-Site Opening Assistance
An experienced member of the Press’d operations team will be on-site to assist you with the final setup the week before opening and they will remain onsite for opening week. We will make sure that nothing is missed leading up to your opening and that everything goes smoothly once the doors are open and the lineups appear.
