Yes. Corbett’s has a preferred vendor program that will provide you with all the products that you will use to operate your restaurant. In addition, we will assist you with your opening inventory purchase for both food and sodas.
Social media is really big right now. Do you have a policy as to what I can and cannot do?
We have an extensive social media policy that we have coupled with best practices. Some store owners are better equipped than others to monitor and manage their social media presence. We will discuss this at length during training and you will be all set up before you open your restaurant.
How long will it take me to open my restaurant once I have signed a franchise agreement?
Your first location will generally open within 6-9 months of signing your agreement. If your location has already been identified, the time to open can be reduced considerably.
