“As folks look at our Franchising opportunity, I want them to know several things. First of all, I joined this organization thinking about growth, thinking about high-level customer service, and thinking about making our franchise owner network very successful. We’ve consistently been able to invest in the business, we’ve consistently been able to roll out new product categories and new services and be able to evolve the brand. I want them to know that is going to continue in the future. We see the opportunity to go from 740 stores to 800, 900, 1000, with opportunities that bring us more and more coverage, more and more success for multi-unit franchisees and more and more buying power to bring increased margin and profitability to the franchise owner.”
