Cafe2U recently hosted their sixth annual conference for the franchise network, which proved to be another roaring success. The purpose of the annual conference is to develop each Cafe2U franchise by demonstrating how franchise partners can get the most from their territory.
Last year’s guest speaker, Michael Heppell – a bestselling author and professional performance coach – was invited back for a second year. Themes of ‘How to Be Brilliant’ and ‘How to Save an Hour Each Day’ provide franchise partners with key knowledge and up-to-date information, ensuring the Cafe2U network is kept healthy with fresh ideas.
There were also franchise partner interviews hosted by David Downie, the Cafe2U Chairman, allowing for clarity of success and the opportunity to share best practice. Prominent guest speakers and ‘hot-topics’ are designed to complement the continuous portal of support Cafe2U franchise partners have available to them all year round.
The Cafe2U annual conference also allows the franchise partners to get to know one another. Being based up and down the county often means franchisees rarely have the chance to communicate face-to-face. One franchise partner praised the annual conference method, saying: “Partners tend to feed off each other in discussion and much can be learned by sharing our different experiences.” This ongoing sense of community and teamwork is something that Cafe2U constantly strives to maintain.
