As we all know the proper selection of a business's location is a vital component to its success. Therefore, we carefully research and select every Big Al's Steals site analyzing factors such as traffic patterns and client potential. Once all criteria are met and a location has been selected, we assist in negotiating your lease and your store's build-out.
It is only when you are comfortable with your location, lease terms and marketing area that we move to the next phase of the process – we assist you in the transition to ownership and the start-up process begins.
As a result of our extensive training programs, Big Al's Steaks franchisees are trained experts in the Big Al's Steaks operating system before they ever open their own location's doors.
Our comprehensive program includes multiple phases of training including:
- A seven day introductory training program (including travel and lodging expenses) at Big Al's Steaks University located at our corporate headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida where you will learn all aspects of the business such as food preparation and delivery as well as, marketing, advertising, scheduling and bookkeeping.
- A week of on-the-job training at an established Big Al's Steaks store which allows you to put your classroom training to use.
- Seven days of training at your store with one of our experienced operations advisors who will assist in your store's setup as well as the implementation of our proven marketing program.
We support you every step of the way.
