Maintain Brand Consistency: Automate Compliance Checks for Improved Adherence to Standards

The customer experience is critical for restaurants. An exceptional experience translates to happy customers who return and recommend your restaurant. It all starts with brand consistency. The execution of safe food preparation, sanitation and other operating procedures must be consistent.

Employee Engagement: More Engaged Front-Line Employees for Better Customer Experience

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 51% of restaurant brands say that hiring, training and retaining restaurant staff is the biggest challenge they face. Also, the average turnover rate for restaurants is 62%. Learning and development is a critical tool in the toolkit for successful operations and drives improved unit economics for the owners. Better-trained employees means faster ramp time and less turnover.

FranConnect provides a way for restaurant businesses to develop and deploy highly customized branded content to support front-line employee training for improved onboarding and engagement and enables brands to monitor engagement success at the unit-level. Operations teams are empowered to deliver and monitor best practice training, access up-to-the-minute data, staff training results, performance appraisals, and satisfaction surveys with benchmark reporting.
