Favorite provides full initial in-store training for you and your staff prior to opening, as well as ongoing training and support from our field quality and service team.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

As a Favorite franchisee you will need to be committed to delivering the quality products and service that our customers expect.

Our opportunity is ideally suited to owner-operators and you should be willing certainly in the short-term, but preferably over the longer-term, to play an active role in the running of your store to achieve its maximum potential – though stores can operate successfully on a managed basis if necessary.
