Training & Support
A Commitment to Success
Baya Bar management is absolutely committed to the success of our franchisees. We have channeled the passion we bring to our food and our Brand into the creation of a world-class training and support program for every step in the healthy restaurant business and franchise development process, from the selection of the best store through ongoing store management.
When it’s time to find and secure your best location, you’ll have access to our in-house real estate agent. You are not required to utilize this service, but we know from experience that we can leverage our brand strength and knowledge to obtain the best possible lease agreement terms for your new business. For example, we can walk you through making sure your potential site has the necessary infrastructure in place to support a Baya Bar Franchise, and, if needed, can work with the landlords to obtain upgrades to create that ideal location.
A 3-Pronged Training Approach
Your training will be provided in three important steps.
-First, you’ll attend a Corporate training with key Baya Bar staff.
-Second, you will spend time at an existing Baya Bar location getting to know all the aspects of managing a store to both reinforce the Corporate training and to prepare you for the opening of your own store.
-Third, you’ll benefit from a one-week, on-site mentorship in support of your opening.
During this 3-4 day franchise training, you will learn about all of the elements that make the Brand and healthy restaurant business model unique. You will learn to prepare the menu the Baya Bar way, how to maintain the superb quality of the food, and how to keep discarded food to an absolute minimum (to prevent waste and to keep costs in check). Making sure the products you will serve are up to Baya Bar standards is critical both for maintaining the integrity of the Brand and for giving your store the best possible chance for success.
In addition to the food preparation, you’ll spend time learning store management processes, including:
-Day to day operations;
-Tracking the cost of goods compared to sales;
-How to handle payroll costs to ensure you aren’t paying too much (or too little) to your staff;
-Finding the sweet spot of staffing vs. customer service and quality for your location;
-Handling customer relations;
-Advice on the licensing and permits that you’ll need to obtain for your store;
Training in An Existing Baya Bar Location
We’ll reinforce your franchise training by having you spend a week in an operating Baya Bar healthy restaurant business location. During this time you will work right alongside the store management and staff, doing everything from opening the store to preparing food to cleaning and closing the store. We’ve found that franchisees who invest this time are far more calm and confident about running their own store, right from opening day.
When it’s time to open your location, you will receive a full week of support from an on-site Baya Bar staff member. Together, we will walk through every element of management, including:
-Opening the store each day;
-Prepping each shift for success, including shift close-out processes that allow the next one to pick up the store seamlessly;
-Inventory management and ordering;
-Prepping and cleaning the fresh fruits and vegetables;
-Closing the store each day.
Accounting and Book Keeping
One major, ongoing benefit of becoming a Baya Bar franchisee is access to our Enterprise QuickBooks (if you choose to use it) and to our in-house expert book keepers. These accounting professionals intimately understand the workings of our stores, and can easily spot if anything is amiss with inventory, payroll, vendor costs, and more. You can utilize our recommended Point of Sale system, or the one of your choice; as long as we can gain access to your data, we can keep your books and help spot trends that should be addressed. This saves you valuable time and effort from creating these processes for yourself, and the trial-and-error of learning to manage these aspects of your business.
