Today is a very special here at Archadeck Living! Today marks the first day of our first training class of 2015 and we are thrilled to welcome our newest franchisees to Richmond, VA.
Archadeck Outdoor Living is proud to be a World Class franchise and strives to provide our franchisees with the very best training and support. When looking to launch a new business there are several things a new business own has to be prepared for. One of the main reasons many entrepreneurs look to franchising versus launching their own business is the time tested tools, processes and procedures that are in place to serve as a turn-key opportunity.
At Archadeck, we spend three full weeks with new (and even existing) franchisees with our annual Archadeck University training programs. Over the next three weeks we will follow our newest group of franchisees as they navigate through the Archadeck U curriculum.
Today, our newest batch of franchisees had the pleasure of spending the morning with Outdoor Living Brands CEO and COO, Chris Grandpre and Scott Zide. Chris and Scott spend a great deal of time with our newest franchisees and enjoy sharing Outdoor Living Brands’ Visions, Values and Expectations for the coming years. Chris and Scott do a great job of exciting new franchisees and the morning session was incredible!
After the morning session, our incredibly talented IT support team came in to walk our franchisees through their technology resources. Pamela Leur and Amanda Berdeen cover everything from setting up your Archadeck email to managing your leads in the CRM software. Amanda and Pamela are the Outdoor Living Brands IT gurus and are always very patient and kind when explaining or fixing any technical issues.
So what’s on the docket for tomorrow? Business Management training with Outdoor Living Brands’ CFO, Corey Schroeder and Accounting Coordinator, Alex Waterfield!
