Little Caesars, Qdoba, Juice It Uup and Topper’s Craft VIPs will reveal how they have automated the franchisee process.

Vetting, onboarding, training and tracking franchisee progress are imperative to running a successful brand, but they are also expensive and time-consuming. What if there were ways to cut both the costs and the labor associated with managing franchisees? Although it sounds too good to be true, it’s possible, according to several panelists who are sharing their go-to strategies during the Restaurant Franchising and Innovation Summit, March 30-April 1 in Nashville.

Speakers include:

  • Greg Sausaman, CEO and co-founder, Topper’s Craft Creamery.
  • Craig Sherwood, VP, Little Caesars.
  • Jim Sullivan, CDO, Qdoba
  • Susan Taylor, president and CEO, Juice It Up.
  • Moderator: Taj Adhav, CEO, Leasecake.
