Passion and Commitment are Cool.
The ideal Coolgreens franchise partner understand where Coolgreens fits into their community and the need for healthy, delicious, good for the soul food. Our franchisees are passionate about the brand and commited to customer service and the communities that they serve. We seek these same values when speaking with new candidates.
Experience in the industry is preferred but not required. The operation is very simplistic and our systems and training are outstanding. However, you do need to have good business sense and be a "people" person who has the ability to share your Coolgreens' passion with your customers.
Like a Boss!
With the ease of the Coolgreens operation, it gives our owners time to focus on activities designed to drive more business and to provide superior customer service.
The owner and/or GM arrives at 9am and takes care of any accounting, ordering or HR needs. You will review the catering orders for the day. Two employees arrive at 10am, proteins are prepared, bulk produce is cut, vegetables are cut and put into service containers. 10:30am the serving line is prepared and the dining room and restrooms are checked for cleanliness.
11am you are open for business and you will serving dine in customers, preparing 3rd party delivery orders and coordinating catering jobs.
1pm, the line is replenished. At this time the owner/GM can get out of the store and spend an hour or two out in the market dropping off menus and our delicious chocolate chip cookies to surrounding businesses to increase awareness and drive sales.
4pm you start preparing for dinner business similarly to how you prepare for lunch, additional prep is done as needed.. 7pm you start preparing for business the following day. Schedules are made, or reviewed. Banking is taken care of.
9pm the restaurant closes. We close to open meaning we perform a lot of the prep work for the following day between 8 and 9pm. General clean up and typically the last employee is out of the building by 10pm.
